Many festivals have had to cancel this summer's activities with the authorities' latest restrictions. This is not the case for Aarhus Jazz Festival, which with its structure with concerts spread over many organizers and venues throughout the city, like last year's Summer Jazz, can be held. However, it will still be the case that the festival is affected by the covid-19 restrictions, and concerts will be with reduced audience capacity.
Hotel in the center of Aarhus and Aarhus Jazz Festival has negotiated a good price on hotel stays during the festival.
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.
Information about Aarhus Jazz Festival
It is over for a week with fantastic jazz concerts in Aarhus. It was in many ways a very special year, but the music did not let itself be held down by covid-19. There was jazz music. There was audience. There were musical experiences and good atmosphere. Summer Jazz 2020 presented more than 170 corona-proof concerts at 25 venues across the city.
The Aarhus Jazz Festival has decided to present Summer Jazz 2020. The jazz activities that can be held during the normal jazz festival period 11-18 July are gathered here.
This is the third time that Aarhus Jazz Festival awards the prize as Aarhus Jazz Talent. It is given to a person or initiative that has made an extraordinary mark and has shown a special talent in its work for jazz music in Aarhus. This year, the award goes to the team behind the venue Erlings Jazz- og Ølbar, which in addition to the honor and a cash prize of DKK 10,000 also gets the opportunity to curate the concert at the award ceremony.
