Music producer and composer Jan Simons has created a live soul and jazz music show for Hanko Soul Jazz Weekend and August Hanko. All bands and programs have been produced for the Hanko Festival. This year the event is held for the sixth time and the focus is on top Finnish names.
Hanko Soul Jazz Weekend is organized in cooperation with the city of Hanko and local restaurants, and the main concert will feature TV star Simon Zion, singer Elna Romberg, Markus Ketola, Kalevi Louhivuori, Jere Haakana, Juho Valjakka and Jan Simons.
The festival will be celebrated taking into account the hygiene recommendations and safety to at risk groups. There is a separate area in the auditorium of the main concert where the use of a face mask is mandatory. The entire audience will be given face masks and encouraged to wear them during the concert.
