Every year in August, Jazz Middelheim livens up the already lively city of Antwerp in Belgium. The iconic summer jazz festival draws chords of music fans to Middelheim Park for four memorable days, filled with invigorating sounds. The diverse artists embrace a wide musical spectrum, ranging from avant-garde jazz to rock and EDM.
The previous year's lineups featured prominent artists like Philip Catherine, Alexandre Cavaliere, Kurt Rosenwinkel Trio, Aka Moon 30 Y, and Flight of the Black Zebra ft. Jacob Bro.

The tradition of Jazz Middelheim stems from 1969. Hence, the organizers wittily name it a funky grandpa of all jazz fests. The first edition took place as a jazz promenade in the very same Middelheim Park. As of today, the jazz festival is recognized among the city's favorite summer events.
