Visitors programme SummerJazzCycleTour 2017

The SummerJazzCycleTour and Dutch Performing Arts work closely together again this year to present Dutch work, musicians and bands to British and Irish presenters.
In the last weekend of August it is time once again to pick a cycling route through the gorgeous Reitdiep valley, to the north-west of the city of Groningen (the Netherlands). During this ZomerJazzFietsTour (SummerJazzCycleTour) event, you'll cycle by concerts in medieval churches and farmers’ barns. Five cycling routes offer a way into the varied programme full of latest trends in jazz and improvised music from the Netherlands and abroad.

During this event there's a visitors programme with a special focus on presenters from the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland (UK/ROI) due to the Going Dutch programme. Members of the Jazz Promotion Network will attend the SummerJazzCycleTour and other jazz events in the Netherlands in light of a future project to increase the performances and visibility of Dutch jazz in the UK/ROI. View the list of attendees below in pdf.

Wilbert de Joode Core Trio, Wolter Wiersbos, Van Binsbergen Playstation, John Dikeman, Ronald Snijders Band the and Herman/Beets/Jacob/Bennink are just a few of the many great Dutch musicians and groups playing at the festival.

The visitors programme is made possible by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands.
