Brussels becomes a stage for annual free Jazz Weekend

Jazz and music enthusiasts will head to Brussels this weekend for Belgium's biggest free jazz festival. For the first time, the festival is collaborating with well-known music venues such as Botanique and Ancienne Belgique. 

For three days, there will be free jazz concerts on three squares and in some 25 cafés across the capital. By turning the centre of Brussels into one big stage for top artists from Belgium and abroad, the festival hopes to promote jazz. 

The biggest names will be performing on the three main stages, in some of Brussels’ most iconic squares. Those looking for the best in contemporary jazz will find it at Grand Place, while Place de la Bourse will be the place to be for anyone looking to explore the boundaries of the genre. Place Sainte-Catherine will become the "next generation stage". Acts will also be performing in various bars and clubs throughout the city.
