Organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), the 24th Istanbul Jazz Festival will be realised under the sponsorship of Garanti Bank for the 20th time this year. The 24th Istanbul Jazz Festival will host leading names and new discoveries from the world of jazz as well as the stars of contemporary music. The festival will feature more than 200 names in 20 different venues around Istanbul between 4-20 July 2017.
This year’s festival will feature a remarkable innovation titled “ViTRin”: Showcase for Contemporary Music from Turkey which aims to focus on the successful musicians and ensembles of the local scene, for a wider outreach with the support of SOCAR Turkey. ViTRin will include several festival concerts from 5 through 8 July and will be open to the festival audience as well as leading representatives of the international music industry.
The music marathon “Night Out” and the free of charge, open air event “Jazz in the Parks” will be held on the Asian side of Istanbul as part of the festival programme. The festival will feature “A Childlike Day”, a special event that includes performances and workshops for children.
