Jazzaldía

This year Heineken Jazzaldía celebrates its 53rd edition between the days 25 and 29 July. One more time, you will be able to enjoy the best artists of this music genre.

During the former editions more than two thousand artists have played in Jazzaldía. In 2018 there will be international artists such as Salvador Sobral, winner of the 2017 Eurovision song contest, or Gregory Porter, considered the current best male jazz voice and winner at the Grammy Awards for jazz vocal album in 2014.

Basque jazz also counts with an important place in Heineken Jazzaldía. Up to thirty-four artists and Basque groups will be playing during these days. Ten of them were selected after a contest celebrated between January and April.

Teatro Victoria Eugenia, Plaza de la Trinidad or Playa de Zurriola are only some examples of the seventeen stages this event counts with.

During the festival the award Donostiako Jazzaldía will be also handed. From 1994 this award recognizes the career of former and current jazz artists. This award will be given to the singer Mary Stalling and to the musician Michel Portal.

Jazz music is relax, rhythm and much more! If your passion is jazz music or you just appreciate good music, do not miss Heineken Jazzaldía.
