The ZJFT has a new set-up on Saturday 27 August:
There are 4 FIXED ROUTES.
Each route has 2 START TIMES.
Each route guarantees access to 4 CONCERTS.
In a number of routes you have to MAKE a CHOICE
between two small concert venues.
For the more stubborn jazz fan, we also offer the possibility to put together your own FREE JAZZ ROUTE with four concerts. The choice is limited, however, you have to compose your own cycling route, check cycling distances and make your choices and book in good time.check FREEJAZZ
On Friday evening August 26, the prologue will take place with two bands from the ZJFT program in Simplon, Groningen.
Tickets for this can be booked separately.
This year the structure of the ZJFT has changed. You can choose from four fixed routes. Each route offers four unique concerts at special locations in the Reitdiepdal and each route has its own color:
In terms of concert venues, the routes alternate between large barns and small medieval churches. To accommodate as many people as possible, the routes split into two smaller concert venues at some points. It is important to know that for each route you have to choose between two different starting times. The big advantage of this approach: you are guaranteed a place, the distances can be cycled and the ZJFT remains unchanged in a charming way, stubborn, adventurous and varied.
For the more stubborn jazz fan there is still the possibility to compose your own free jazz route. You do have to figure things out and most likely make your choices and book in time.
