🔻 Due to the worsening COVID situation in Finland and uncertainty regarding public events, Ylläs JazzBlues festival January 27-30, 2022 will be rescheduled to ➡️ January 26-29, 2023. We’re extremely sad to give up after several months of preparing, but there is just too much uncertainty in the air right now. We don’t want to risk anyone’s health nor the future of our dear festival.
✨ For 2023, our intention is to keep our program (incl. artists, venues and schedules) exactly as it would have been in 2022. We’ve started negotiating with artists and venues about that already.
✨ Those of you who have bought advance tickets will receive an email from us soon. You can either get your money back or save your tickets for YJB 2023.
✨ If the COVID situation gets better in January and restrictions allow, we might be able to organize a few gigs January 27-30, 2022. We don’t, however, encourage anyone to make travel plans for these gigs. We’d be just delighted to offer live music to those who are in Äkäslompolo that weekend anyway. More info will follow on week 2!
Thank you everyone for your support in these difficult times! We’re looking forward to seeing you in 2023!
💙 Your Ylläs JazzBlues organizing team,
Ilkka, Pasi & Heli
