Festival Description

Music fans can enjoy modern and traditional jazz, funk, rock, blues, and latin jazz indoors and out as Brussels goes jazz-mad for a weekend in May. Local and international groups and artists fill the main squares, streets, bars and theatres of the Belgian capital for a truly finger-clicking experience. An incredible 125 concerts are given by around 400 artists. Outdoor gigs are held on the three public squares: the Grand Place, Place du Grand Sablon and the Place Sainte-Catherine.

One of the not to miss activities is The Mini Marathon for kids and their families on Saturday, where kids and families can enjoy a program that includes animated stageconcerts and music workshops, balloons, free make-up and a funny Milkbar where you can taste milk and icecream.
