05.04 - Ticketing has taken off!
We are very grateful for the many positive reactions we received last year because of our lowering of the entrance fees. Therefore nothing changes this year, although we tried to invest in a more ambitious programme.
Day-tickets will be available for € 23,00. The opening concert (with the Carlo Nardozza Quintet and Dianne Reeves) costs € 17,50 (rang 1) or € 12,50 (rang 2). A three-day ticket (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) costs € 60,00 this year. All tickets are available through our website, Fnac and Uitbureau Ghent.
05.04 - More new names...
To add more lustre to our fifth edition, Toots Thielemans will perform at the festival together with pianist Bert van der Brink and Trijntje Oosterhuis Tuesday 18 July. The same day Michel Herr will make his appearance with his nonet, a kind of Belgian all-star with musicians like Bert Joris, Phil Abraham, Steve Houben and Bruno Castelluci.
Friday 21 July Jaune Toujours brings an explosive mix of culture, language and different styles of music, while the young band Skeemz combines beats with melodic arrangements and vocals the day before.
We can also confirm the name of Sioen. This passionate performer was born and bred in Ghent and already has two gold records. He will play Björk songs accompanied by three saxophones and lots of other stuff.
The complete programme will be announced Tuesday 18th April.
14.03 - New names...
Friday 14th July saxophonist John Zorn returns after his performance at the 2003 festival with his quartet 'Acoustic Masada'. Pianist Eric Legnini, without a doubt one of the most 'black' artists among Belgian musicians, will (finally) perform Saturday 15th July with his Eric Legnini Trio. After several attempts over the past years we are proud to present Chucho Valdés, one of the godfathers of Cuban music, accompanied by his own band on Sunday 21st July. Thursday 20th July the Brazilian jazz guru Sergio Mendes will be playing at the festival. Daniel Romeo, the Belgian funk beast, will turn Sunday 23rd July into an exceptional day. This same day also 'The Original Superstars of Jazz Fusion' feat. Among others Lonnie Liston Smith, Bobbi Humphrey, Roy Ayers and Wayne Henderson.
