The new program is available
»JazzBaltica has never before been closer to the waves and the beach! I am looking forward to an outstanding edition of our festival. Right in the centre of Timmendorfer Strand we will celebrate the colours of jazz together with international and regional artists – improvising, crossing borders and enchanting everybody with music.«
Nils Landgren, Artistic Director of JazzBaltica
From the 22nd to the 24th of june 2018 Nils Landgren invites his musical friends to Timmendorfer Strand. This year the festival takes place in the area around the Strandpark for the first time. Stars from the Baltic region as well as young talents and international musicians will be there. On the MainStage Jan Garbarek, Ulf Wakenius, Dieter Ilg, Wolfgang Haffner, Nils Wogram, Maria Baptist, Johannes Enders and Eva Kruse will show their great talents. Furthermore the audience is invited to listen to Candy Dulfer, Randy Brecker, Paolo Fresu, Bill Evans und Donny McCaslin. Celebrating his 60th birthday the Swedish bass and cello player Lars Danielsson dominates several concerts with different groups.
A new home for the festival: Strandpark
The festival welcomes visitors at a new location: JazzBaltica moves a few hundred metres from Niendorf to the middle of Timmendorfer Strand. The stages of JazzBaltica are closer to the sea than ever before. Directly at the beach, next to the pier, artists perform on the stage @the beach. Only a few steps ahead is the Rotunde of the Trinkkurhalle, called JazzCafé – here are concerts as well as jazz talks with musicians of the festival. An OpenAir stage for mostly regional musicians is located next door. These stages are surrounded by a beautiful park, offering lots of possibilities to have picnics or to stroll around. In the JazzClub, located at the 73Bar of Maritim Seehotel the musicians get together for jam sessions. The hotel also hosts the MainStage at the Festsaal with capacity for 1000 listeners.
