JazzFest Berlin
5 – 9 November 2008
5 – 8 November 2009

jazzfest-berlin-2008-bannerFor over forty years, Berlin in early November has been a capital city of jazz. The Berlin Jazz Festival is a world renowned festival that presents all the manifold and diverse styles of jazz. The full and varied programme is equally traditional and progressive, and has tended to focus in particular on big bands and large ensembles. This four-day “marathon of jazz” also sounds the spectacular final chord of each year in Berlin’s jazz calendar. Alongside the big American stars the JazzFest Berlin also increasingly presents artists from all over the world, artists whose music centres on crossing the borders between local folk traditions and global sounds and trends. In recent years the festival has set regional focuses and has thereby gained a reputation as a forum of European jazz.

The media partners ARD, Deutschlandradio (stream) and Arte document the festival in concert recordings from all the various stages across the city, with the Haus der Berliner Festspiele as the focal point of the festival.
