On 3-11 June 2017, hundreds of people will be attending the annual Tampere Guitar Festival, filling the city with sweet melodies.
Catering to a variety of music tastes, the Tampere Guitar Festival is raising the bar with an impressive line-up of worldclass performances this summer.
“This is the 13th festival we’ve organised, and renowned international artists attend each year,”
says Tomi Tolvanen, founder and director of the event.
This year’s star performers include Yamandu Costa, the renowned Brazilian guitarist, as well as Sinfonity – Electric Guitar Symphony Orchestra.
“Yamandu Costa is one of the world’s leading musicians specialising in Brazilian ‘choro’ music, and he is attending our festival for a second time.
Sinfonity, the Spanish electric guitar orchestra, consists of ten guitar virtuosos who play everything from Bach and Holst to Vivaldi in a spectacular performance.
Although the festival focuses mostly on acoustic guitar music, Tune into world-class
we have diversified in recent years to offer a variety of amazing music performances,” Tolvanen explains.
As well as concerts, there are many guitar courses and workshops available to those interested.
In addition, the Tampere Guitar Festival organises cruises on the Pyhäjärvi lake.
The so-called Midnight Sun Guitar Cruise features a range of performances as well as dinner and drinks on the picturesque Finnish lakeside.
“The surrounding nature is breathtakingly beautiful, and we’re lucky to be near such a stunning setting,” Tolvanen says.
“Tampere is within easy reach of other big Finnish cities, and it’s a perfect location for a one or two-day stopover.
There’s plenty to see here, and the lakeside offers the ideal introduction to Finland’s nature – and an opportunity to enjoy the nightless night,
Tune into world-class when the sun doesn’t set below the horizon during the summer months.”
The Tampere Guitar Show is a two-day sales exhibition that runs alongside the main festival event at Tampere Hall.
“The Tampere Guitar Show is an ideal opportunity for music lovers,
students and guitar professionals to mingle with guitar makers and enthusiasts – and test out the handmade instruments,”
Tolvanen explains. “We offer a wide selection of interesting music experiences to everyone visiting.
The festival is not exclusive to guitar players: everyone who enjoys good music and great atmosphere is welcome.
The beautiful surroundings come as a bonus and the festival is well worth a visit.”
