For over four decades, the North Sea Jazz Festival has delighted jazz lovers in Rotterdam. Hailed as one of the most celebrated and time-honored festivals, it's an event not to be missed.
From its inception, the festival has left a lasting mark on culture with an electrifying start that welcomed luminaries like Miles Davis, Count Basie, and Dizzy Gillespie in its inaugural year.
Each year, the North Sea Jazz Festival continues to broaden its reach beyond jazz music and showcase many innovative artists pushing the boundaries of their genres forward. In 2022, spectacular performances from Alicia Keys, H.E.R., Gregory Porter, John Legend, and Michael Kiwanuka - plus an incredible artist-in-residence show from Herbie Hancock himself.
