Attention jazz lovers! One of the most famous and important festivals of its’ kind in the world is here and as always, it will be nothing but the best! Yes, you got me, I am talking about the Voll-Damm International Jazz Festival. More powerful than ever, it is the perfect place and time to appreciate the widely recognized artists as well as for the new ones to emerge.
Taking place (almost) every year since 1966, Voll-Damm International Jazz Festival comes back this year celebrating its’ 50th-anniversary edition! The festival officially starts on the 26th of October and will linger on until the 21st of December. Even though the end of October is when the concerts start taking place, you can dive into the jazz festival much earlier, as the program sure has plenty to offer.
- The Magic Fountain of Montjuïc is famous for putting up a show of lights, music and dance. Thanks to the International Jazz Festival, every Friday from the 5th of October it will move to some lovely jazz tunes.
- Having so many districts, Barcelona definitely knows how to celebrate it – various free events take place in each district from 5th of October, and no surprise, jazzy ones are there as well.
- Many conferences, competitions, master classes of the art, meetings with the artists and various other activities await you this year. The whole program can be found here.
