A unique festival in Sweden

Unique in Sweden, the Gothenburg International Jazz Festival is one of the most popular events in the region. It is a festival that focuses on the niche of jazz and is defined by its family clientele. It is a place of exchange between Swedish culture and other cultures of the world. The event is recognized for the festive atmosphere, sharing and respect that reigns, the quality of its artistic approach, its human dimension and the quality of the meetings that are made and moments that are their lives, as well as by the majestic environment in which it stands: the city of Gothenburg!

GÖTEBORG'S Jazz Festival

It's sad to announce that we have decided to close down the jazz festival. It has been a difficult decision to make after all those fun years, but the workload has become to heavy, and the economic situation is to uncertain. It is mainly thanks to dedicated volunteers and local orchestras, which has played for a modest compensation, which we have been able to carry twenty-five jazz festivals in Gothenburg. Thank you! The same, we want to say to a faithful audience! We know, after all, that we stop with twetny-five esteemed and successful festivals behind us.
