Undoubtedly one of the biggest and best festivals on the jazz calendar is Rotterdam’s annual indoor North Sea Jazz event, which has been going since 1976 and is scheduled in 2018 for the weekend of 13th to the 15th of July. Next year’s line-up hasn’t been announced yet but given the festival’s past history, it’s bound to be a jaw-dropping array of talent from the worlds of jazz, R&B, and funk.
For those wishing to get first dibs on tickets for next year’s festival, from next Friday (November 17th), you’ll be able to buy full weekend passes at the reduced price of €199, which sounds like an absolute bargain. But you’d better be quick – last year’s Early Bird tickets sold out within a month.
