Gent Jazz Festival

Gent Jazz Festival was first organized in 2002, named “Blue Note Festival” at that time. It soon became the biggest jazz festival in the country and acquired its membership of the Europe Jazz Network, the International Jazz Festival Organisation, the “Federatie van Muziekfestival in Vlaanderen (FMiV)” and, as a Ghent based organisation, it contributed to the title of Ghent: UNESCO Creative City of Music.

Every year in July jazz enthusiasts can have a great time during the Gent Jazz Festival. Renowned artists from Belgium and abroad make up the programme
