About Ghent Jazz Festival
Ghent jazz festival has been running every year since 2002.
It started as the Blue Note Festival, became the Blue Note Records Festival a few years later and now goes by the name of Ghent Jazz Festival.
You’ll find avant-garde artists alongside mainstream international jazz artists.
Healthy and fresh food is the order of the day.
The Gent Jazz Festival is as much a food festival as it is a music festival.
Handpicked food trucks offer a balanced kitchen with a focus on delicious fruit and vegetables.
