At Tavara-asema, a tattoo festival and a second-hand event with focus on children’s clothes will take place.

Tullikamari and Tavara-asema have launched a wide range of events for the upcoming year. In total, more than 130 top artists will perform at the Tampere venues during the spring and summer – and new gigs are constantly announced!

On the stage of the legendary Tullikamari, we will see performances by the British rock giant The Darkness, Ellinoora who is known for her powerful voice, as well as Jesse Markin, a multi-genre artist who has already gained international success. At Tavara-asema, which won the venue of the year award recently, the audience will be entertained by positive Portion Boys, beloved songwriter Antti Autio, and progressive rock band Saimaa that plans to release new music soon – just to name a few of the upcoming gigs.

“A lot of sold-out events took place at our venues in 2023. This year, the same pace seems to continue. Among the artists performing for full audiences are already Kaija Koo, one of the most successful Finnish artists, as well as ibe who is known as the voice of his generation, and Don Huonot that will be returning to stage after a long pause. One could certainly say that Tampere is strengthening its position as the number one city for live music”, says Janne Laurila, program manager of Tampereen Kulttuurikamari.

The other one is TEKNOASEMA that focuses entirely on electronic music. At Tullikamari, Big Pop and other classic nightclubs are complemented by the queer-themed Club Nylon.

New kind of events will take place in Tampere as well. At the beginning of February, the two-day Tampere Tattoo & Art Fest will gather tattoo fans at Tavara-asema. Soon after that, the historic venue will host a Moomin concert suitable for the whole family: Benny Törnroos & Muumipeikon Tähtihetki. In addition, the popular Tavara-asema Second Hand will focus on children’s clothes in March.

In addition, we will continue active accessibility work at both of our venues. We are currently developing new events and operating models, which we will be able to share more about during the spring”, sums up Kristiina Paananen, marketing and sales manager of Tampereen Kulttuurikamari.
