5–11 July 2017

The Jyväskylä Festival has been moved to early July, to ensure a better availability of accommodation, among other reasons. The festival will be organised on several sites around the city. The programme features an impressive selection of music, song and theatre, in addition to art workshops.

The compass, a popular meeting place on Kauppakatu in the city centre, will serve as the venue for the What are they doing?! programme. This year, the festival will offer a more diverse and extensive selection of free events than ever before. The Jyväskylä Festival has requested suggestions from the public for events to be held in the restaurants, cafés and shops on Kauppakatu and for the pedestrian zone and courtyards in the city centre – you name it!

The fee-based programme features 19 concerts, among other events. The performers include The Real Group, a world-renowned vocal group from Sweden, as well as Mikko Kuustonen, a beloved Finnish artist, the hilarious Semmarit choir and show group and the internationally known Finnish musicians Ismo Eskelinen, Iiro Rantala and Tommi Hakala. A Carmen concert will be held in anticipation of a future production by the Jyväskylä Opera.

The German theatre company Familie Flöz will make the audience laugh and cry, and mimic Thomas Monckton will make them gape in awe.

During the festival, the Mäki-Matti family park will offer activities for families with children: street art, singing, fun and games, as well as architecture created from sweets. The summer programme also features concerts for children.
