Since 2002, our festival is the place where young adventurers, hip scenesters and dedicated music fanatics all get their concert fix. As stubborn as the citizens of Ghent are, this festival hosts jazz and much, much more… We aim for music that thrives on a stage, is performed by first-class artists that defy labels, show guts and are driven by a desire to perform. We offer international stars, emerging talents and unknown gems waiting to be discovered the ideal circumstances, in front of a critical, but warm audience.
Gent Jazz sets the bar for quality: we offer an ideal acoustic experience on a pleasantly organised festival site, VIP meals to die for and perfectly served drinks. That’s how we create a memorable and unique experience, from start to finish, for our musicians, our partners, our staff and our audience.
