About Festival Jazz International Rotterdam

Rotterdam has been home to a successful festival of contemporary, innovative and high-quality jazz since 2001. Festival Jazz International Rotterdam offers a multi-day jazz programme of national and international appeal, with ample attention for young talent, new projects and an in-depth programme of activities.

Festival Jazz International Rotterdam is an intimate event, offering visitors and artists an adventurous and intense musical experience. This has enabled it to carve out a distinctive niche for itself on the Rotterdam, national and now international jazz scene. Since 2016, a satellite edition of the festival has taken place concurrently: Festival Jazz International Nijmegen.

New focus from 2019 on – Rotterdam scene and sound

According to the festival organizers, what Rotterdam needs most is a strong creative climate. That will allow Rotterdam’s jazz community to develop further and build up a bigger following. Festival Jazz International Rotterdam 2019 offers plenty of scope for local musicians and new projects that emphasize cultural diversity.

We complement and deepen the contributions from local musicians by programming a host of national and international artists. The programme features jazz, hip-hop, electronica, impro and many crossovers, all with a Rotterdam flavour. To discover and experience innovative music, come to the Festival Jazz International Rotterdam in late October.

About Festival Jazz International Nijmegen

Rotterdam and Nijmegen will team up for the fourth time in 2019. We are committed to presenting a number of interesting new national and international jazz names and exchanging local talents. Greg Ward’s Rogue Parade performs in both cities, as do the Rotterdam Pack Project with Efe Erdem, the Nijmegen Doppler Trio and Jesse Schilderink’s Nijmegen-Rotterdam Collective.

Frequently asked questions

Are the concerts seated or standing?

Some venues only provide seated places. Others have both seated and standing room. On Saturday evening, October 26, there are no seated places in room 1 of LantarenVenster.

Is it allowed to bring your own drinks to the festival?

No, this is not allowed. For drinks, you can go to the bars at the different venues of the festival.

Is the festival easily accessible by public transport or by car?

The various venues of the festival are easily accessible by public transport and by car. The locations are within walking distance of each other.

See information about accessibility on the websites of the different locations.

Is the festival accessible for people with disabilities?

Yes. Please let us know in advance to the festival organization to info@jazzinternational.nl, so we can offer the necessary guidance.

Can I bring a photo camera, film camera or IPad to the festival?

Many music lovers would prefer to capture all their favorite artists with their own cameras. Nice to watch at home, nice for later! We understand that all too well.
However, you do enjoy the music more if you listen and do not take photos, and our hired photographers provide beautiful photos that you can enjoy afterwards on our website and social media.
This is why we have the following camera policy: only accredited press photographers are allowed to take professional cameras and take photos or film recordings during the festival. Other recording equipment, (semi-professional) cameras and cameras with a removable lens are not permitted. IPads and other tablets are also NOT allowed, partly due to the nuisance they create to other members of the public.

Festival visitors are allowed to take compact cameras, but should take into account the following: DO NOT use FLASH (a request from many artists to the festival organization so that they are not disturbed during their performance) and make sure that you do not disturb the sight and pleasure of other spectators.

Why do I have to pay a service charge when purchasing a ticket?

You pay service costs because we use an external ticketing system. The amount includes the costs that are directly related to the ticket. Think of the costs for scanning, the help desk, back office, data communication, access control, people who enter the performances in the ticketing system and so forth.

Do children also have access to the festival?

Of course! Up to 16 years old under the supervision of an adult (18+).
