This event has become an annual must for jazz culture enthusiasts.

And, during the festival, there are a number of great artists who perform free concerts that cannot be missed.
Starting at 16:30 on Saturday, October 21th, the Hot Street Parade group will sound around the city as they play a jazz concert on the second floor of the touristic bus until late in the afternoon. Then at 12 pm on Sunday, the Parc Central de Poblenou will host the traditional free opening concert of the festival. This year’s invited artists include: Francesco Bearzatti Tinissima Quartet and Big Band de l’ESMUC, directed by Tim Garland.
