Five new artists to Jazzfest!

Air Play rallies the troops and pays tribute to former band member with new music, and the up-and-coming Finnish saxophonist Linda Fredriksson fronts their new project Juniper with gusto.
The septet in Eirik Hegdal's steaming fresh Eklektisk Samband meet in its genre-less playground - with a world premiere in Trondheim and at Jazzfest.
Friends & Neighbors mixes new and old in their distinctive and outgoing expression, and the duo Leagus visits Jazzfest for the first time with their dreamy soundscapes from Sápmi.

Trondheim Jazz Festival and Trondheim Symphony Orchestra & Opera (TSO) have been partners for several decades and have given the public a number of unique concert experiences. Equally unique is the project "Eastwood Symphonic", which will be the official opening concert for Jazzfest 2024 on Tuesday 7 May at 20:00.

Just listen: Clint Eastwood's musician son - Kyle Eastwood - is on stage with his quintet. Then it will all be taken out in the grandeur together with TSO.

Julejazz 2023 was a great success! 

What a pleasure to welcome 800 enthusiastic music lovers at Scandic Nidelven this Christmas - with 17 concerts and musical energy replenishment from over 80 local musicians in one evening.

Many thanks to everyone involved who helped make this evening happen - skilled musicians, volunteers, technicians, staff, sponsors and other supporters, and the continuation of a long-standing pleasant collaboration with Scandic Nidelven. New in 2023 was a record high sale of hotel packages, so it is clear that many people want to wake up to the country's best hotel breakfast!

And not least, a big thank you to you in the audience who turn up to listen, dance, smile and clap along.

Julejazz is once again one of the most important meeting places for all of us music lovers in the cultural metropolis of Trondheim.
