The OFF Jazz Festival

The OFF Jazz is back for an all-new 21st edition, which will take place from the 1st through the 3rd of October 2020. A not-to-be-missed fall event for jazz fans, this year the festival offers a hybrid format that puts local artists in the limelight.

A hybrid format: what is that? The current situation has compelled the OFF Jazz to develop a new format for its 21st edition. Government policy now allows for small crowds to gather in venues. It is therefore at the Cabaret Lion d’Or and at the Bourgie Hall that the festival will hang its hat, inviting festival-goers to discover evenings of exceptional jazz. Given that the capacity for venues has been reduced, in order to comply with social distancing measures, festival goers who cannot attend the concerts in a physical manner will be able to attend them online. Indeed, the majority of the shows will be broadcasted live and free of charge via Facebook live on the OFF Jazz page
