The Festival of Jazz of Freiburg is one of the most important events of traditional and modern jazz of the French-speaking Switzerland. The festival brought together many jazz legends from New Orleans as well as jazzmen of the Canton of Freiburg and beyond. Every year the spectators coming from throughout Europe appreciate the original program of the festival, its exclusive productions, the proximity of the artists and the landscapes which surround the city.
