The legendary Funky Elephant Festival stomps this year from night clubs and venues of Kamppi to the old factory milieu of Suvilahti, Helsinki, and its intimate courtyards which will be filled with enchanting atmosphere. Several theme areas will welcome you to experience a cultural programme, loads of activities, and other inspiring details with an audience coming from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

Rhythm-focused festival programme takes you in an open-minded and versatile way from funk, soul, jazz, hip hop, reggae and afrobeat to modern club sounds and world music, played both by the live artists as well as top-notch deejays.
The main act of the festival will be the father and founder of British neo soulOmar along with his live band. The distinguished soul star will be performing in Finland for the first time in 12 years!
