Julejazz (Christmas jazz) on 28 December has become an annual tradition, and a popular meeting place for all the city's music lovers.
Trondheim's unique jazz scene fills the Scandic Nidelven Hotel with good music and a great atmosphere, and keeps it going non-stop from 18.00 until well past midnight. The event has grown into the country's largest indoor concert event under the same roof. In 2022, close to 80 musicians performed on three different stages with around 20 concerts.
Among other things, you will hear Mambo Compañeros, Trøndelag Big Band, Anna Berentina Røe Band, Førdenasane and much more!
Jazzfest and Olavshallen invited for the second year in a row to a big musical family day with concerts, workshops, disco, film, treasure hunt, drawing, dancing, face painting, competitions and much more.
Around 1,500 children and adults came through the doors of Olavshallen that day, and had a great time with the various activities that took place throughout the building.
On Sunday 15th of October, every corner of Olavshallen will be filled with concerts, workshops, disco, dance and music from several parts of the world and fun activities for children.
The program starts at 12:00 –and everything is FREE.
Save the date and stay tuned for detailed program!
In collaboration with Idrettsrådet i Trondheim and Trondheim Kommune there will be a stand where you can borrow a translator. There will be guides available who translates to Ukrainian, Somalian, Arabic, Dari, Urdu, Pashto and English.
We are very happy that former NTNU Ambassador Siril Malmedal Hauge is writing new music for Jazzfest 2024 with support from the Norwegian Composers Foundation.
This is what Siril herself says about the Rhiza Song project:
"As in a web of roots, messages are sent in a network of communication - a kind of secret language. In this work I feel like digging in the soil and getting my fingers a little dirty. Making life, fishing for fine fibers, intertwining threads, digging in roots, and looking for fertile ground for musical biotopes. I am fascinated by unique bonds between different organisms, and the belonging to each other in a world that is constantly changing."
