Porispere, Pori (Finland) 5-6/8/2022

This year the Porispere has grown larger by expanding the festival area to accommodate more people, with a new larger stage and no restrictions on alcohol areas. Unfortunately the weather was not on the side of the festival, rain and wind made the program change at the last minute and two gigs were canceled. Despite all, the festival was a success and the dates for next year have already been announced.

Rock in the city, Pori(Finland)

Rock In The City tour was supposed to take place to several Finnish cities during the summer of 2020 but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was possible to organize the festival in only two cities; Joensuu and Pori.
We were present with our cameras in Pori on August 21st and 22nd.
The event was held at Kirjurinluoto, a park on an island in the center of the city already known for important music events such as Pori Jazz and Porispere, the age limit was 18, allowing alcohol to be consumed throughout the area. The organization did a great job of maintaining state-imposed restrictions, hand sanitizers were everywhere, there was enough room to keep distance, and security men were always on when needed.
Talking about music, the festival features only Finnish rock and metal bands, this year in Pori performed Amorphis, Battle Beast, Beast in Black, Andy McCoy, Michael Monroe, Sami Yaffa & Costello, Brother Firetribe, Stam1na, Mokoma, Turmion Kätilöt, Viikate, Kotiteollisuus and Klamydia.
