KAAMOSJAZZ HAS RENEWED!
Aarno Cronvall started his career as the Artistic Director for the 33rd Kaamosjazz – festival in January 2013. His task is to gather the best line-up of artists for the festival in co-operation with Inari-Saariselkä Tourism Ltd and the concert venues.
Kaamosjazz concerts are held in four locations. In Saariselkä Village the venues are Santa’s Hotel Tunturi, Lapland Hotel Riekonlinna, Saariselkä Fell Chapel, Restaurant Kaunispään Huippu and Ski Saariselkä Sport Resort. In Ivalo Restaurant Kultahippu, in Inari Village Sami Cultural Centre Sajos and in Kakslauttanen Santa’s Resort and Hotel & Igloo Village Kakslauttanen which are also well-known for the glass-roof igloos where the Northern Lights can be comfortably watched from one´s own bed.
Kaamosjazz is a festival with long and versatile history. The first time jazz was played in Kaamos (Polar Night) was in 1981. Thanks to Grand Old Man Kauko Launonen and a group of volunteers from Kaamosjazz Ry the festival has grown ever since. Mr. Launonen retired from his position in 2011 to give Inari–Saariselkä Tourism Ltd (former Northern Lapland Tourism Ltd) the leading role in developing the event and coordinating it with the concert venues in the region.
