The online jazz festival 'Bel Jazz Fest' from Flagey
The sale of tickets for the Bel Jazz Fest begins on May 20 at 10 AM. on jazz.be
The Brussels Jazz Festival, the annual jazz festival of Flagey, organizes in collaboration with ten other big Belgian festivals on May 29 and 30 the online jazz festival Bel Jazz Fest. The 24 concerts of Belgian groups will be broadcast from the studios of Flagey renowned for their legendary acoustics. The current crisis hits our jazz musicians really hard. With a ticket for the Bel Jazz Fest or a donation, you support Belgian musicians, technicians, suppliers and organizers.
Concerts in Flagey, streaming on jazz.be
All concerts will be recorded at Flagey and broadcast on jazz.be. For only 15 euros you receive access to the full line-up: a carefully assembled group of artists that represent the best Belgian jazz has to offer nowadays. North and South, young talents and well-respected stalwarts, men and women, both familiar and experimental sounds. All connected by the language of musical improvisation.
"Our team takes all the necessary precautions to allow the artists and employees to work in optimal safety conditions. Flagey returns to its roots with Bel Jazz Fest: our studios were initially built to make recordings with perfect acoustics. Back then, this was ideal for radio, it will now be ideal for this online festival", said Gilles Ledure, General Manager of Flagey.
