On June 11, 12 and 13 the 21st edition of the jazz festival Swingin’ Groningen takes place, where you can enjoy many jazz performances throughout the city.
This edition of Swingin’ Groningen is extra special, as this year’s theme is ‘The Dutch edition’. The organisation wants to give Dutch jazz artists and upcoming talents a chance to show what they’ve got.
Also, Groningen has a connection to the German ‘jazz-city’ Hamburg’, which is mainly focussed on culture and creativity. During Swingin’ Groningen this relationship is celebrated with performances of the greatest German bands.
There will be many performances on different stages throughout Groningen. Thursday, June 11th will start with the international contest between candidates of different conservatories from Denmark, Sweden, Estonia, Germany and Groningen of course! This will take place in the Nieuwscafé.
On Friday and Saturday you can choose from a variety of fantastic jazz performances of well known artists such as Sabrina Starke, Cool Quest en Sven Hammond, but also of upcoming talents. Check out the program here.
