The 36th edition of Jazz Middelheim will be held from 3 through 6 August this year, which is slightly earlier than the weekend of 15 August, which is when the festival is normally held. “In cooperation with several other international festivals, we try to make sure that the public from all around the world can enjoy their favorite acts every year. In order to be assured that we could put the right programme together, we moved the festival up a little bit this year,” explains festival organizer Bertrand Flamang.
Today, Jazz Middelheim, which is being held from 3 through 6 August in Antwerp’s Park Den Brandt, is announcing several of the artists that will be performing this summer. Randy Weston, Bill Frisell ‘All We Are Saying’, Mingus Big Band, and Tony Allen Quartet: Tribute to Art Blakey have all confirmed that they’ll be in the park in Antwerp on 5 August. Ruben Machtelinckx will be demonstrating the various forms of his art on the Club Stage.
