The art poster for the 33nd edition of the Aarhus Jazz Festival was designed by illustrator and graphic artist, Anya Winqvist, who has merged one of the classic jazz instruments, the saxophone, with the city's characteristic town hall. This year's festival will among other things focus on the jazz saxophone at a number of concerts.
Aarhus Jazz Festival takes place 10.-17. July 2021, where there will once again be jazz music all over the city. Among other things, the festival will focus on the saxophone at a concert series that both pays homage to the instrument's role in jazz history and delivers the sound of jazz saxophone today. The festival showed in 2020 that it is possible to conduct jazz concerts with the restrictions that may still exist due to covid-19. Therefore, we are also confident in terms of being able to present a jazz festival in 2021, although it will probably still be evident that we are living during a pandemic. We follow the situation and the authorities' announcements closely and will, like last year, adapt the festival according to the current guidelines in collaboration with the jazz festival's organizers.
