Northsea Jazz Festival

Something to remember!

semi-overcast

Here you will find the Biggest and one of the best Jazz Festivals in Europe.

It's called The Northsea Jazz Festival. One of Europes most important Jazz festival's. I have never seen a festival so well organized in my life. I have worked with a lot of festivals, but this one here is the best. They have about 135 musical groups over a 3 to 4 day span.

This festival is an well oil machine if I have ever seen one before. I have attended this festival about 6 times in my life and ever time it's the same as before far as organization is concern. The Northsea Jazz festival organizer's know their stuff.

So if you ever attend this festival, get ready to enjoy yourself . Now don't be surprise if you're at a concert and you see about half the people from the concert leave. It's only people going to another concert that's all. Their are so many concert's to choose from, that people will leave one concert in order to catch another performance.

The concerts are held in this very large office building. Their are concert]s in ever nook and cranny of this builing,even on top of the building(The Roof) where they have a tent on top that they also use to give concert's. It's the Potpourri of jazz here. You will find everyone that plays jazz and some that don't going to this festival.

If you are interested in going to this festival, here is the link:

It's in the City called the Hague (Den Haag). The festival starts on July the 8th.9th& the 10th. So don't miss out on this festival. At this time I don't know the line-up but take my word, its always a great line-up.

I was trying to remember the name of the restuarant for you that we ate at. It was a great Chinese restaurant. I have never in my life had a oyster so big and good before, and the duck was something to die for.. I do remember it was close to Hotel Europe,which is not to far from the Festival site. I would also like to say that we (The group that I was working with at the time) made this restaurant popular. We would always brag about how good the sea food was there. Now it is one of the main attractions for eating out, and to think I didn't get a dime for that advertisment.(Go figure)

The most popular hotel for the festival is The Hotel Belair. This is the hotel where most of the musician's stay.( If only those wall's could talk). I've heard stories coming from this Hotel that would make your teeth grit. (and put a smile on your face). So make your reservation fast for this hotel, the hotel maybe already booked!

Hey Larry,
You've got some great tips here about a lot of jazz festivals. Have you thought about posting some of them in the Travellerspoint travel guide (http://www.travellerspoint.com/guide/)?
Cheers,
