Jazz and Muziek - Gent Jazz Festival


Gent Jazz Festival is organized by the non-profit organization ‘Jazz en Muziek’.
 
We aim at giving opportunities to jazz musiciens and at introducing this genre to a large audience. Our second goal is to promote Belgian jazz musicians, both on our own festivals and by our international network.
 
Gent Jazz Festival was first organized in 2002, named “Blue Note Festival” at that time. It soon became the biggest jazz festival in the country and acquired its membership of the Europe Jazz Network, the International Jazz Festival Organisation, the “Federatie van Muziekfestival in Vlaanderen (FMiV)” and, as a Ghent based organisation, it contributed to the title of Ghent: UNESCO Creative City of Music.
 
Gent Jazz Festival wants to be a sustainable high quality festival that focusses on the experience of live music.
