Since the beginning in 1966, Denmark’s oldest jazz festival has been an extremely popular event with a truly unique atmosphere. The city simply breathes jazz for 5 days. With swinging parades in the streets, open air stages in the town squares, concerts in nearly every café and on the water, restaurant and venue in town, you won't be able to escape it - but why would you?
If you want to experience the ultimate Riverboat Jazz feeling, you should book a ticket to one of the sailing concerts on board "Hjejlen" - the world's oldest working steamboat - or one of its siblings.
Every year, about 50.000 people visit the jazz festival in Silkeborg to experience top shelf jazz musicians from all over the world.
