About Oslo Jazz Festival
Oslo Jazz Festival has always had the ability to present a wide-ranging festival line-up. The program represents the whole spectrum of jazz and related music, from gospel and blues to latin jazz and electronica. The festival has concerts especially for children, and every year a separate showcase stage presents young, unknown talents. Oslo Jazz Festival puts its mark on the streetlife with jazz parades through the centre.
Oslo Jazz Festival presents well-known and unknown jazz artists for a big audience. Since its "flying start" in 1986, the festival has given jazz lovers many great concert experiences. International stars such as Phil Woods, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Bobby McFerrin, Brad Meldau, Django Bates and Illinois Jaquet Big Band have all spellbound the audience at Oslo Jazz Festival.
