The Tampere Jazz Happening was first held in 1982 and has been part of the city’s cultural events calendar in southern Finland every year since. The festival has been organised since 1990 by Tampere Music Festivals, which is part of the cultural department of the city of Tampere.

NICA artist development is cooperating with the international festival for the first time this year.
