Kiirarock says Thank You

The idea of Kiirarock started already back in 2012. With the vision of putting together a brand new rock event in Tampere, students of the Tampere University of Applied Sciences created an exclusive concept for Kiirarock. All parts of the event like the production, graphic and video design as well as the promotion were covered by motivated students specialized in the different media fields.

Even if Kiirarock seems to be just a regular event, it is not! The team behind Kiirarock is young, enthusiastic and international. With zippy multi-cultural working styles, professional skills and the love for music, the students developed an event which turns more and more from a school project to an independent happening. After the success of the first edition in April 2014, Kiirarock 2015 was ready to step things up.

This year’s Kiirarock offered not only an artistically strong Line Up but also a promising great evening in a cozy surrounding. With I/O, Kiirarock braught a newcomer Progressive Metal band from Tampere on stage to watch out for. New Deadline are already experienced in thrilling the listener with their amazing confusion of Post-Hardcore and melancholy. At Kiirarock they presented their new record “Remember” while Idiomatic fascinated with deep melodies and catchy rhythms. 

This year’s Kiirarock was a huge success as we were SOLD OUT! More than 100 people came to see the event. The hard work of the last months totally paid off and after this amazing result we are more than thrilled to continue working on it.
