One of the biggest and longest-lasting festivals in Bergen,
Nattjazz, has since its origin in 1972 been a crucial part of the city’s culture experience.
In May this year, the festival will stage as many shows as last year,
only in fewer days, offering even more music for the money.
Arranged during the same week as the established Bergen International Festival, this May the jazz festival,
visited by nearly 13,000 people annually, boasts close to 100 concerts and events.
“Among others in 2014, Nattjazz and Bergen will finally present two American jazz singers again, More jazz for the money
Dianne Reeves and Madeleine Peyroux, alongside other famous artists,”
says Roger Lygre Solvang, head of media at Nattjazz.
“Arranged over the course of ten days, from Thursday 22 to Saturday 31 May, More jazz for the money
this year’s festival is also one day shorter yet offers the same number of concerts and events,
subsequently providing more entertainment for the money,” says Solvang.
Idyllically located by Puddefjorden on Nordnes in Bergen,
all the gigs at Nattjazz are performed under one roof in one of the most modern festival facilities in the Nordic countries.
“We want the audience to experience and enjoy quality music across several genres, and we offer them a chance to discover new artists,”
he continues. “While our main focus is ethnic and modern jazz,
we are no strangers to booking artists from all over the jazz world,
offering both up-and-coming performers and established stars.”
“Nattjazz also focuses on the increasingly exciting developments within Norwegian jazz, having offered a breakthrough for several domestic stars.
And speaking of enjoyable Norwegian experiences, the Bergen spring should be mentioned,
naturally best enjoyed during a festival,” Solvang concludes.
