Default Re: The Festival Thread

Anyone who lives in Europe or can get there should check out the jazz festivals they have there during the summer. Most of the big names around the world spend their summers touring Europe and playing festivals. I've been to the Vienne Jazz Festival (Vienne, France), Montreaux Jazz Fest (Montreaux, Switzerland) and North Sea Jazz Fest (The Haag, Netherlands). You get to see the best jazz in the world (I've seen Jackie McLean, John Scofield, Jack DeJohnette, Larry Goldings, Billy Cobham, Soulive, MMW, and many others), plus hang out and see the sites in some of the coolest areas of Europe. I have not been to the Umbria Festival in Italy, but that's a huge one too.
