Veszprém 2023, Four days with the Jazz sound

Veszprém 2023, City of music Veszprém 2023, City of music

Peter Gabriel and Sting's favourite drummer Manu Katché, nu jazz emblematic trumpeter Erik Truffaz, Grammy Award-winning guitar virtuoso Bill Frisell, amazing Swiss drummer Jojo Mayer and the Scary Pockets, who have made a name for themselves with their funk reinterpretations of well-known songs, will also perform at the Veszprém Jazz Festival from 16 to 19 November 2023.

The festival, part of the Veszprém-Balaton 2023 European Capital of Culture (VEB2023 ECoC) programme, will feature nearly 30 concerts at Hangvilla, Expresszó and Papírkutya.

In line with the musical concept of the Veszprém-Balaton 2023 European Capital of Culture programme, they implement, encourage and, if appropriate, support projects that enrich the musical events of the region with innovative ideas or genre diversity, preferably beyond the overcrowded summer peak season. The Veszprém Jazz Festival, which will debut in 2023, fits into this line.

The four-day musical journey of the Veszprém Jazz Festival kicks off with a concert by one of the Hungarian audience's favourite trumpeter Erik Truffaz. His music combines Miles Davis-influenced runs, classical melodies and electronic or world music elements. And for good reason: Erik is a man of constant renewal and pushing the boundaries of genre. On his album Rollin', released this year, he reinterprets 20th century film scores, and is expected to perform some of them live for the audience in Veszprém.

One of the main objectives of the Veszprém-Balaton 2023 European Capital of Culture programme is to present the widest range of musical genres in Veszprém during the year, in line with the title of the UNESCO City of Music, in a way that is not only enjoyed by concertgoers but also by the people living in the region.Free mini concerts will therefore be added to the programme during the Veszprém Jazz Festival.  From 16 to 19 November, a cross-section of the genre will be on display in Veszprém, where a wide range of world-class musicians and young Hungarian talent will perform.
