Turku Rock Academy will for the second year in a row have their own stage at the SmugglerRok festival this August.

More information on the festival:


SmugglerRok in Lieto will be this summer's only festival collaboration for the Turku Rock Academy. After an eventless and quiet spring and summer there is still hope that at least one festival will be organised and TRA will be a part of it if the situation allows.

– It is absoloutely wonderful that we will have the possibility to take part in at least one festival this summer, says Turku Rock Academy's executive director Tomi Arvas.

– SmugglerRok was an amazing experience last summer and it is a joy and honour to be a part of it this year as well. The feedback from last year was only positive.

– This is extremely educational and useful for the progression of the bands. And it’s not only musicians who get valuable experience, but also the young interns responsible for the technology and other back stage work, adds Turku Rock Academy's executive producer Mark Bertényi.

The sixth SmuggerRok festival will be organised at Laurin kenttä, Lieto on 6.-8.8.2020.
