Mondriaan Jazz 2019

Mondriaan Jazz Festival will be held on Saturday the 12th of October 2019 in its residence city The Hague. As for the past editions, the festival will again take place at PAARD & In Het Koorenhuis. For the third edition we will bring you artists from all over the world to The Hague. Progressive jazz & hiphop from New York, the sweet sounds of the new wave of the hip UK Jazz movement and the modern and contemporary jazz from Latin-America, are all represented during this one-day festival. On Friday the 11th of October you can already get yourself going with the opening concert held In Het Koorenhuis.

We aim to bring the best live acts of this moment together in the shadow of Mondriaans love for contemporary jazz music. The line-up is innovative, contemporary and closely monitors the developments of (jazz) music. Mondriaan Jazz is an explorers trip where you can see and discover unique international collaborations, international debuts, new scenes and curated projects.
