North Sea Jazz Festival is the biggest jazz festival in the world. Just about every genre is represented there – from traditional New Orleans jazz, swing, bop and free jazz, to fusion, avant-garde jazz and electronic jazz. And it doesn’t stop at jazz; blues, gospel, funk, soul, hip hop, R&B, world beat and Latin enthusiasts have a great time as well. In short, the annual North Sea Jazz Festival is a multi-faceted event that attracts between 60,000 and 100,000 visitors each year, from countries all over the world. Prior to and during the jazz festival in Ahoy there will be over 150 (mostly free) concerts throughout the city. In addition, there will be exhibitions, boat trips with live jazz, jazz cruises, master classes, film and video presentations.
