Block Concerts

During this exceptional summer, the stage is coming to you, for free. Helsinki Fest brings art to all parts of the city on 21–23 August.

The Block Concerts provide a cosy art experience for entire courtyards throughout the city on Saturday and Sunday, 22 and 23 August. We are looking for performance venues all over Helsinki. We welcome all courtyards, from art nouveau to brutalism, to participate in the open application process! Experience a unique performance from a safe VIP box, your own window or balcony and delight your neighbours with sweet sonnets or R&B beats. We will bring a high-quality, family-friendly and moderate-volume performance by a Finnish professional artist or group to each courtyard. Acoustic music performances and/or performing arts experiences will last about 20 minutes and take place between noon and 8 p.m.
