Description: 

FOR MORE THAN 50 YEARS, THIS UNIQUE SCENE FOR JAZZ AND IMPROVISED MUSIC HAS BEEN A REGULAR MUSICAL EVENT IN UMEÅ. OVER THE YEARS, THIS CULTURAL AND INNOVATIVE CENTRE IN THE NORTH OF SWEDEN HAS PRODUCED THE HIGHEST YIELD OF JAZZ MUSICIANS IN SWEDEN. IT ALSO HOLDS ONE OF THE MOST EXCELLENT JAZZ CLUBS – UMEÅ JAZZSTUDIO.

During the festival days, most performances will take place at the venue of the festival organizer; Umeå Folkets Hus. Caused by the pandemic situation we might have to reduce the amounth of concerts and stages in order to secure the event and to prevent from spread of Covid-19 infection. All in order to protect our audience, artists and staff. At the APPLE CLUB you can eat, drink and enjoy concerts performed by a variety of jazz groups. At the JAZZ LAB stage, you can enjoy experimental jazz. The JAZZSTUDIO gives you an intimate international club atmosphere while the IDUN THEATRE is the main stage of the festival and gives you the possibility to experience both legends and brandnew stars.
