Friday Nights gives visitors exclusive after-hours access to the Masterpieces from the Hermitage: The Legacy of Catherine the Great, live performances from a line-up of Australian and international performers, DJs, pop-up talks and great food and dining experiences. This year, indie rock, pop, jazz, folk and rock music are all on the menu.

Headline: Jaakko Eino Kalevi

Born and raised near the central Finnish lakeland city of Jyväskylä, Jaakko’s musical journey began in the mid-90s when, aged 11, he discovered the progressive metal of US rockers Dream Theater, followed by hip hop, reggae, disco, techno and whatever else he and his friends discovered on the internet. When he finally moved to Helsinki, Jaakko found his feet in the local music scene and released his 2013 breakthrough EP, Dreamzone while driving trams in Helsinki. His first full-length album, released on 15 June 2015, Jaakko Eino Kalevi, marks the start of a striking new chapter for the now-Berlin-based artist and is already making quite an impression on the international stage.
