Helsinki Beatles Weekend 8.-9.5.2020

More Beatles – More Love

Finland’s biggest Beatles festival takes place 8-9 May 2020 at Helsinki Hall of Culture. This nostalgic weekend is an impressive take on the production of the Fab Four.

During the two days stage will be shared with some of the best Beatle tributes in the world who will entertain the audience in form of unique concerts and parties. This year, we celebrate especially the 80th birthday of Sir. Ringo Starr and John Lennon. We have the pleasure of having two amazing tributes, when Ringer Star and Javier Parisi step on stage to perform their shows and to give credit for the birthday heroes. These men look and sound exactly as their inspiration.

We will hear the whole spectrum of the Beatles production all the way from hits to rarities, without forgetting the solo production. In addition to Jiri Nikkinen The Beatles Tribute Band and other familiar Beatles tributes we will hear some unforgettable tunes by some great artists that are less known for the wider audience. On Friday, we will hear Beatles music as bluegrass arrangements when Jussi Syren and the Groundbreakers take the stage. On Saturday She’s Leaving Home will perform us their take on the Beatles and provide us amazing keyboard driven arrangement accompanied with great vocals. We will also get a chance to get to know the next generation of the Beatles tribute when Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band will entertain us with their great show.

Beatles mass will be organized as a part of Helsinki Beatles Weekend -festival on Saturday 9 May 2020 at 11:00. This completely free-of-change mass will take place at Kallio Church, only a short walk away from the Helsinki Hall of Culture. Last year the mass was a huge success and the Church was completely full.

After that mass the Beatles-day continues at the Helsinki Hall of Culture, where we will see the world premiere of the Mystery Trip -movie (in Finnish only, no English subtitles) which tells the story of Jiri Nikkinen The Beatles Tribute Band traveling to the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool.

It’s not only fun to listen Beatles, it’s fun also to sign it. At Helsinki Beatles Weekend you will be able to participate in a singalong with all the other Beatle-fans and sing the songs together. This is completely free of charge.

This is the closest you can get to the 60’s spirit and peace and love.
