DNA, the main partner of SuomiAreena, continues from previous years in arranging an impressive summer concert at the event. In the concert to be held in Pori on Wednesday, 17 July, the audience will be entertained by Maija Vilkkumaa, Michael Monroe and Vilma Alina. The event will also be televised.

DNA is again the main partner of SuomiAreena, held this year between 15 and 19 July, and will provide the event with extensive telecommunications connections. As in previous years, DNA will also provide SuomiAreena with its own TV channel, SuomiAreenaTV*. In addition to the impressive summer concert, the event will include an opportunity to explore the DNA Smart Home showcasing home telecommunication services of the future.

Summer concert to feature Finnish hits and a summery atmosphere

“DNA’s entertaining summer concert has drawn a full crowd to Raatihuoneenpuisto, Pori for the last four years and our popular concert is coming again this summer. The sweltering atmosphere of last year’s concert was enjoyed by as many as 7,500 spectators on the spot. It is excellent that MTV will also broadcast the summer concert for all television viewers in prime time on Saturday night, right after the event”, says Vilhelmiina Wahlbeck, Vice President of DNA’s Corporate Communications.

“It is fantastic that the DNA summer concert is once again taking over SuomiAreena. Year after year, the concert has attracted a staggering number of fans of SuomiAreena and good music to the Purje stage”, says Mari Haavisto, Executive Producer of SuomiAreena and Chief Content Officer of Mediahub.

The DNA summer concert will be held on the SuomiAreena Purje stage in Raatihuoneenpuisto, Pori on Wednesday, 17 July at 7 pm. The concert will feature the Finnish top artists Maija Vilkkumaa, Michael Monroe and Vilma Alina. The event will be hosted by actor, singer and presenter Roope Salminen and Vilhelmiina Wahlbeck, Vice President of Corporate Communications at DNA.

DNA’s concert “Roope Salminen ja tähdet Porin illassa” (“Night with Roope Salminen and stars in Pori”) will be broadcast live on the SuomiAreenaTV channel on 17 July. The recorded event may also be viewed on the MTV3 channel on Saturday, 20 July at 8 pm.
