Mondriaan Jazz Festival 2021 is the first Dutch festival this autumn to present a leading, international, unique and challenging program, with the refreshment it brought in previous editions. A program in which all artists present brand new music that they released during or just after the corona lockdown. The festival can be visited physically as well as partially streamed online internationally. For tickets and livestream registration please use the button to the right.

The line-up again contains many surprises in addition to a number of established names. The festival takes place in the halls of pop venues PAARD and In het Koorenhuis, and is a collaboration between Good Music Company, PAARD and Projazz with support from the Municipality of The Hague and various funds.

The first batch of names already bodes well: We will open the festival with a curated duo of American jazz royalty bassist Christian McBride and pianist Jason Moran and we will end the festival with the only 2021 show by UK jazz-afrobeat sensation KOKOROKO.

In between is a full program in which you can experience the contemporary edges of jazz and electronica with, among others, Yussef Dayes, John Ghost, Arthur Hnatek, SWIMS.

In the meantime, immerse yourself in our focus on the Berlin and Helsinki jazz underground, including Y-OTIS and Timo Lassy x Teppo Mäkynen.

Or be surprised by the intimate Dutch debut of singer Sasha Keable or the overwhelming Ensamble Grande by Mexican vocalist Fuensanta Méndez.

Het festival werd bewonderenswaardig snel en slagvaardig omgevormd tot een avondvullende digitale jazzshow
