Festival year 1973The festival lasted three days, which had become a tradition. It started on July 13th and closing on July 15th.
In the 70's men had to wear jackets to enter restaurants but in the summer of 1973 some of the restaurants in Pori started bending the rules especially during the festival:
"An exception is the jazz festival weekend when the only thing required is to wear something. Clogs aren't allowed though because they may be dangerous while dancing."
