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.

How to get there

Ghent is easily accessible whether you’re driving or travelling by public transport.

Close to the intersection of the E17 and the E40 motorways, it’s just under an hour’s drive away from Brussels International Airport.

There are two train stations and the journey from Brussels takes just half an hour.

If you fly to Charleroi Airport, a shuttle bus travels to Bruges via Ghent nine times a day.

The Gentse feesten occurs at various locations throughout the city, but the beautiful Old Town is the main centre of the event.
