Alternatilla Jazz Festival is back for the second consecutive year. In this occasion, Norway is the guest country.
In the festival’s program we can find stablished artists that have already got an international recognition, together with up and coming names which represent the future of the music scene in this Scandinavian country. The festival roster includes also a curated selection of musicians from the island, together with a few relevant names from the Spanish mainland scene.
Seeing that most music festivals don’t usually showcase enough female names, we didn’t want to forget about gender equality, this is why this year’s festival line-up includes a good representation of female artists.
We are repeating last year’s magic formula: a daily concert during the two weeks of the festival; a carefully curated selection of artists from the guest country; provoking and promoting the dialogue and fraternisation of musicians through the hybrid concerts; not just focusing in one venue or city but travelling throughout the whole island; and including a side program of educational activities. And always with utmost respect for the public, looking after and taking care of even the smallest details so everyone can enjoy the music in the best possible conditions, with a fine production and all the care required by the very special occasion.
