Procol's long-awaited return to Finland comes thirteen years after they played the Tammisaari Festival. The occasion this time is the Puistoblues Festival in Järvenpää (home town of Jean Sibelius): blues legend Buddy Guy is also on the bill. The festival area is very beautiful, about 30 km from Helsinki ca. 30 km and easy to reach by train. The main concert on Saturday 1 July will fill the Vanhankylänniemi festival venue at 12.00am, and it will end at 8.00pm. (thanks, Jukka-Pekka)
Järvenpää is located about 30 km away from the capital Helsinki.
There are very good train connections there: the train takes 30 minutes sharp to
get to Järvenpää. The place for the gig is Vanhankylänniemi and that is 3 km
away from the Järvenpää train station (thanks,
The Festival site is www.puistoblues.fi.
