Germany festival's

Some very nice festivals here!

Your text to link here...Germany also has some wonderful festivals all year round. You will find your better festival in the Fall months though. There's nothing like going to a german festival and having a nice tall Wiesin Beer(That's rice beer for the people that don't know).

Germany has great out-door festivals. The air is crisp and clean and the mood is a festive one for everyone to enjoy. The Germans love to drink and have fun. So with that said let's move on to their festive festivals.

When you go to this festival make sure that you have your mud boots on. This festival here is a great music festival to attend, but if it starts to rain, make sure you're well equipped. The ground will turn into a muddy mess and you will be in for a great mud fest.

But I guess that's part of the show. Click here http://www.moers-festival.com

This is a wonderful Jazz festival also very clean and organized. For a great experience of jazz music, you will love this festival. Go here to see... http://www.leverkusener-jazztage.de

This here is another fine Jazz festival to attend. Just remember to bring plenty of joy with you when you attend. Click here http://www.jazz-ost-west.de

Now let me remind you that I'm only telling you about the festivals that I have attended so that you can have a better understanding of each festival.

Northsea Jazz Festival

Something to remember!


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

It's called The Northsea Jazz Festival. One of Europe's most important Jazz festivals. 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 a welled 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 a concern. The Northsea Jazz festival organizers know their stuff.

So if you ever attend this festival, get ready to enjoy yourself. Now don't be surprised 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. There are so many concerts 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. There are concerts in every nook and cranny of this building, even on top of the building(The Roof) where they have a tent on top that they also use to give concerts. It's the Potpourri of jazz here. You will find everyone that plays jazz and some that don't go 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, it is always a great line-up.

I was trying to remember the name of the restaurant for you that we ate at. It was a great Chinese restaurant. I have never in my life had an 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 seafood was there. Now it is one of the main attractions for eating out, and to think I didn't get a dime for that advertisement.(Go figure)

The most popular hotel for the festival is The Hotel Belair. This is the hotel where most of the musicians stay.( If only those walls 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 may be already booked!

Feeling safe!


The Pori Jazz festival is one of those festivals you could fall in love with. It has a charm all by itself, with over 130,000 people attending this festival you will feel the inspiration. The last time I attended this festival James Brown was there along with the group Zap Mama. You feel safe and you will have to enjoy yourself here, that's one of the things I like about jazz festivals and that is you Feel Safe!

To me, that was worth more than anything today. Feeling safe in a crazy world. When I say this I think I'm speaking for just about everyone who travels. After doing the airport and taxi dance, you want to go somewhere safe and this is the place. I like to call this (the comfort zone).

So, sit back and enjoy some great music and have a drink on me. You'll be glad you did!

Don't let the french fool you!


If you are in France These are some of the festivals you can attend. France has over 200 festivals in the Summer I don't know all of them but there are many to choose from. Here are just a few festivals in different regions of France you can visit.

The Vienne Festival is set in an Amphitheater that is over 1000 years old. So you could imagine how that sounds. Perfect acoustics you won't find a better amphitheater than this in France. I have attended this Festival 5 times in my life and have enjoyed every moment of it.

Here is the link:http://www.jazzavienne.com The Festival starts around the end of June till the middle of July.

If you are ever in the Midi-Pyrenees Region, there is a City called Souillac and in July they have a beautiful Jazz festival there. It's the Souillac Jazz festival. Here is the link http://www.souillacenjazz.net

This City is very special. It's in the region where you'll find the World Famous Foie Gras. For the people that don't know of Foie Gras, It's Goose or Duck Liver. You can have it Poch or it comes in the form of Pate. (I think the region maybe Perigord?)

It's a Culinary experience that you will enjoy! If you ever do have a chance to enjoy this dish, please by all means order a bottle of (Sauternes) with your Foie Gras. This a very sweet wine that will compliment your foie, Gras. This is a region for all these culinary extravagant pleasures. Oh France, Ou La La!

The NICE JAZZ FEST, one of three major jazz events in Europe with Montreux and The Hague. This festival draws more than 45,000 spectators every summer with its 500 plus musicians, 8 days, 75 concerts, and 120 hours of magic and music! Every night from 7 pm to midnight, 3 stages present a prestigious array of world-famous artists. For more information here is the link http://www.nicejazzfest.com
