Two of our HQ team - Adam and Ana - will be working there, and will drop in on the Turku Jam whenever they can. Otherwise, they will be helping Jammers worldwide with technical issues, keeping the Jam Buzz going, and spreading the best of the Jam worldwide. Adam says, "It will be a crazy weekend with little sleep and lots of work to do, but sharing the buzz and amazing location of the Turku Jam will make it much more fun. Thanks Turku!"

It's just a matter of days until the first Jams kick off on Thursday, with the majority of Jams joining them on Friday. We have Jams on every continent and from the Arctic circle to the Antarctic Ocean..
There are more than 100 sites signed up for this year's Jam, and we believe it will be better than ever. Can you find your site? For a closer view, see the Locations page...
Thinking of hosting a Jam? Yes, we are still accepting locations!
A Jam can be as big or as small as you manage. It can be full-service, or self-organising. It can be a whole conference center, or just your kitchen table. All you really need is a space, some people, internet and an open attitude. We have seen Jams put together in a few hours and - while that style is not for everyone - they rocked!
So, if you're still hesistating, just get in touch. We'll help you to Jam the World!
