North Sea Jazz Festival
KEYMUSIC: Official backline provider for North Sea Jazz Fesival
On 10, 11 and 12 July 2015 the party kicks off again in Ahoy Rotterdam. The North Sea Jazz Festival began back in 1976 in the Netherlands Congress building in Den Haag with six concert rooms, 300 musicians and around 9000 visitors. A world of a difference from the scope of the festival today. Nowadays approximately 70,000 people turn up every year to see more than 1000 musicians in the 15 concert rooms at Ahoy.
Each year the second weekend of July is given over to jazz in the widest meaning of the word. Big names come from around the world to appear on stage. The varied programming, the decoration and the great atmosphere make it an unforgettable party every time for both visitors and artists. KEYMUSIC is proud to be able to contribute to this. We arrange backstage for all the stages, from our great supply of instrument-related products. We take the experience that we build up here back with us to our stores.
KEYMUSIC Talent Stage
We also have our own stage at the festival, with performances of known and promising talents. The KEYMUSIC Talent Stage, right next to the centre stage, will be programmed in coöperation with Codarts Rotterdam. Music students from Rotterdam, starting singer-songwriters from the area, and probably some price-winning KEYMUSIC customers as well, will be playing with well known artists from the scene.
The KEYMUSIC Talent Stage is powered by Mackie, that will take care of the PA. You can come by with your questions about the instruments that you see being played on stages all around the festival. Don't forget to gain some advice on your next purchase. After all we are KEYMUSIC, with a passion for music and instruments!
Keep an eye on our website in the run-up to the festival and look out for the program and nice prizes. Are you interested to know who performed last year at North Sea Jazz? For all information about earlier editions and this year’s edition, visit: www.northseajazz.com
