Ghent Musical Festivities

The Gent Jazz Festival is spread over two weekends, one weekend for the pure-bred jazz fans and during the second weekend there is room for more fusion artists.

Since its first edition in 2001, when it was called Blue Note Festival the festival became loved among a great deal of people as it welcomes over 35 000 people each year.

Gent Jazz Festival also got a good international reputation and became
member of the International Jazz Festival Organisation.

Gent Jazz Festival, the largest jazz festival in Belgium, presents promising talents as well as international stars.

The first weekend of the festival you can enjoy mainstream and avant-garde jazz in the pleasant gardens of the Bijloke site.

During the second weekend it is all about fusion, singer-songwriters and brilliant live performers.

Thanks to an excellent sound, nice surroundings and a pleasant audience, this festival provides a unique musical experience.
