This year's festival

All preparations for The Riverboat Jazz Festival 2018, which will take place on 27 June-1 July, are running at full speed.

The music program is about to be in place and before the end of February we expect it to be updated and ready for you here on the website. There is so much to look forward to, both from from the danish and international jazz scene. Some artists are well known to the Riverboat audience and others are brand new names to our line up. To us, that is what characterizes a real Riverboat Jazz Festival! All the artists we love and know and the curiosity to experience something we have not heard before. We look forward to presenting you to the entire program for 2018. There will be a total of 160 concerts this year to listen to during the festival. 70 of those take place on our own scenes, 65 concerts are played at a total of 20 external venues collaborating with the festival. 20 concerts take place on the boats while they sail up and down Gudenåen and 5 concerts take place at 5 municipal primary schools.

The Riverboat Jazz Festival 2018 is also a long-awaited recital with Bindslevs Plads, which, as earlier, will have a younger profile and be a lively space where music and audiences are even closer to each other.
