The Finnish Defence Forces Summer Tour


The Finnish Defence Forces’ summer tour invites you to have a great time in twelve locations all over the country in 2022!

The tour in is being organized with music differing from blues to pop and rock to soul! In addition to listening music you can get a peek at modern military service by local divisions’ gear- and action shows. The Air Force Big Band plays the night’s first chords with Heikki Silvennoinen as their soloist. Silvennoinen is known for his remarkable blues guitarist- and singer career in many bands since the 70’s, as well as his role in the 90’s Finnish hit show ”Kummeli”. The night continues with the Navy Band Big Band and the trio ”Souls of Women” by Emilia Vihanto, Iina Mutikainen and Klaara Koivunen. The trio brings out the classics of soul music from Whitney Houston to The Weather Girls. The night ends with The Conscript Band of the Finnish Defence Forces’ Showband. The about 20-person band’s skill is in classic rock classics and groovy funks, as well as modern day pop- and rap hits.

In the events you can get a peek at modern military service and women’s voluntary service as well as gear- and action shows by local divisions.

Every event has free admission. Welcome!
