The Tampere Biennale was established by the City of Tampere and composer Usko Meriläinen as a showcase for Finnish contemporary music in 1986. The past 30 years have seen 15 festivals with hundreds of excellent concerts, featuring music from Finland and abroad and including dozens of world premieres. By any standards, this is a significant festival.
The 2016 Tampere Biennale is a veritable carnival of contemporary music! The various genres of experimental music are prominently featured, working together rather than against each other. The 30th anniversary is all about celebrating the diversity of today’s music.
