The National Jazz Convention in Tampere


In conjunction with the annual Tampere Jazz Happening each autumn, Finnish Jazz Federation organises a separate two-day event for its member associations.

The National Jazz Convention’s program includes a range of discussion and training events, as well as Jazz Finland’s Annual General Meeting. Two awards are given out during the event: the prestigious Yrjö prize as well as the Varjo-Yrjö prize which is granted by the Yle Jazz Radio. The Jazz Federation reimburses one hotel night for each member association representative participating in the Annual General Meeting, as well as a free festival pass to the Tampere Jazz Happening.

The programme and the registration form will be sent to all members by email in September.
