History and Gallery

Past time

John Smith Rock Festival has been organized for four years now between 2016-2019 (in 2020 the festival was canceled due to Covid-19). Every year many great bands have been performed on the stages with the awesome audience in the Peurunka park. 

In 2019 John Smith Rock Festival was nominated as the best rock festival in Finland for the second time in a row by voting of Kaaoszine. Also, the readers of the music magazine Soundi voted John Smith Rock Festival as the best domestic festival for the year 2018 and 2019. Many thanks! <3
