In Ghent we’re spoiled with all kind of cultural activities whole year round. But in summer the offer is really massive. Of course we have the Ghent Festival in July. But just before it starts we can enjoy the Gent Jazz Festival, this year for the 12th time from July 12 to July 20.
The festival takes place in the lovely scenery of the Bijloke Abbey. Where you maybe already visited the City Museum. The programme offers a wide range of artists. Starting with pure jazz, going to Blues, world music, etc. If you don’t find your choice of music on the programme, just go and discover, there will always be something which you will like.
And if the music would really disappoint you, you will be excited about the atmosphere. It is more a luxury festival in a unique historical setting.
