Pori Jazz 2021 is cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Tickets purchased for summers 2020 and 2021 will remain valid as such for Pori Jazz 2022.

Three-day event at the Lokkilava venue between July 15th and 17th

Although the festival is cancelled, Pori Jazz will produce plenty of other music programs. At the legendary Lokkilava in the Kirjurinluoto park area there will be a three-day concert event Pori Jazz Plays Again. The concert day starting at 1pm will feature four prominent ensembles daily. A limited number of tickets are sold for Lokkilava concert days. All arrangements will be adjusted in accordance with the COVID-19 situation and official guidelines. The concerts are organized with emphasis on the safety of all attendees and in accordance with the applicable government regulations. Tickets for the Pori Jazz Plays Again will be available at Ticketmaster Finland on Friday, May 7th at 9 am.


In the unfortunate event that Pori Jazz Plays Again is also cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation, all tickets are refundable excluding Ticketmaster’s service fee.

In addition to the event at the Lokkilava, Pori Jazz will also feature concerts in the Café Pori Jazz during summer. Café Pori Jazz is a new café-restaurant located in the Kirjurinluoto park at a historical Art Nouveau pavilion. During the summer, a large number of Finnish artists and bands will perform on the pavilion’s idyllic terrace. For more information about Café Pori Jazz, please check out the website!

What to do with Pori Jazz 2020 and 2021 festival tickets?

All regular daily tickets for our main concerts are automatically changed into free-of-choice tickets, which can be used on any of the Pori Jazz 2022 main concert days. You don’t have to choose the day before the festival, so you can just arrive on the desired day to the concert venue with your 2020 ticket and get admission as such.

Pori Jazz VIP and Lounge tickets are valid as follows: ticket purchased for Thursday in 2020 or 2021 is valid on Thursday, July 14th 2022. Same applies to other main concert days. Three-day-tickets for summers 2020 and 2021 are valid as such for the Pori Jazz main concert days between July 15th and 17th 2021. Two-day-tickets for summers 2020 and 2021 are valid as such for the Pori Jazz main concert days according to the ticket type – for instance the ticket for Thursday and Friday in 2020 or 2021 are valid for the same days in 2022.

Tickets for Pori Jazz 2022 will be available later on at Ticketmaster Finland.

Our festival has always been arranged by a non-profit association Pori Jazz 66 ry. to which the cancellation of this year’s festival means great financial difficulties. The production of summer 2021 started already in autumn of 2020 and it has already required us significant financial investments that we are unable to fully reverse. The majority of the festival's annual revenue is based on ticket sales, which now obviously is not happening. This is why we’re asking for your support and understanding in these difficult times. 

We’d be very grateful if you could keep your ticket purchased for this year and use it in 2022. By doing so you’d help us to secure the future for the Pori Jazz festival. However, we do understand that this is not possible in all the cases as the COVID-19 crisis affects all of us.

If you wish to be refunded on your ticket, please fill out this application form.

Please note that the refund can only be claimed by the person or organization who purchased the ticket. We’ll refund the actual ticket price, not the Ticketmaster service fee or shipping fee included in the complete price. We'll process applications within 60 days of arrival. Requests for refunds must be made by June 30th 2021. Our customer service will be busy during the forthcoming months so please be patient as we’re doing our best to reply as soon as possible.
