Heineken Jazzaldia 2019: the most important jazz event returns to Donostia this summer!

Heineken Jazzaldia 2019From July 24th to July 28th, 2019, the Heineken Jazzaldia Festival will celebrate nothing less than its 54th edition. This is one of the oldest jazz festivals in Europe, an event that comes to San Sebastian every summer for lovers of this musical genre to enjoy. The most outstanding personalities have passed through its stages, and every year it leaves the highest mark. You up for it this summer? If you stay at our boutique hotel on Concha Bay, you will be just a short walk from the main venue where this important event is held.

The jazz festival has been religiously held every year since 1966. It is, without a doubt, one of the oldest festivals in Spain. Whether you are an enthusiast of this genre or not, the reality is that it is worth attending some of its concerts. Many of them are free of charge and are exhibited in different venues in San Sebastian, although the main venue is in the vicinity of the Kursaal Auditorium (Zurriola Avenue1).

In this edition, artists such as Diana Krall, Neneh Cherry or Jamie Cullum will take jazz to the highest level. But they are not the only ones who will take the stage to the delight of the more than 150,000 spectators who usually attend the Heineken Jazzaldia Festival. In the poster, we find other prominent names in the field as Joe Jackson, Javier Colina or Joan Baez, among many others. More than a hundred concerts will be dedicated to flooding the last corner of the emblematic Zurriola beach and other parts of the city with jazz.

Presence of Basque artists at the 54th edition of the festival

Basque jazz will once again occupy a preferential place in this upcoming edition. Specifically, 32 artists from the Basque Country will be able to make their point of view of this genre that moves mountains. Jon Urrutia Trio, Lurpekariak, Javier López Jaso-Marcelo Escrich Quartet or Broken Brothers Brass Band will be some of these local participating groups.
