XJAZZ festival Berlin 2020
XJAZZ festival Berlin
XJAZZ is a festival-format that was launched in Berlin in 2014 and immediately became Berlin’s biggest and most influential Jazz Festival.
XJAZZ is a festival that strives to cross boundaries. By opening up the jazz spectrum to include improvised electronica and neo classical music, we can encourage jazz and its continuing influence on all forms of contemporary music.
The festival programming places a strong emphasis on contrasting and surprising elements as well as playing in very contrasting venues (techno clubs, indie-rock clubs, punk club, churches).
XJAZZ wants to establish intercultural bridges.
Iceland, Israel, Turkey and Poland have been the partner countries so far for the annual XJAZZ festival Berlin. İn 2018 Minsk joined the family with fascinating debut in Minsk.
Besides concerts, XJAZZ is also a platform for workshops, panels, think tanks and multicultural networking.
The XJAZZ network also includes media / app / label and explores new ways of music communications and distribution.
