Finally, the time has come for the Jazz Rally to take place in Dusseldorf! One of the most exciting events of the year, attendees enjoy an exciting weekend full of Jazz, Funk and Soul music. This year the event runs from the 17th until 19th May and takes place in 150 different locations throughout the city. One location that is sure to be a favorite is an open-air stage directly in front of the Rhine complete with bridges and the famous Rhine tower in the background. However, I am most excited about a performance scheduled to take place at the airport and featuring Xavier Naidoo a famous German artist with an extraordinary voice.
Every year I can feel the anticipation building for the event. As acts and locations are released I find myself planning out my calendar, trying to squeeze in every event! The city is a buzz with energy and expectation. Of course everyone is quick to purchase the famous Jazz Rally Button, which gets you into all the official events.
This year, Breidenbacher Hof, A Capella Hotel is getting in on the action! Funk/Soul Duo Monica & Hutch will be playing at the Capella Bar. I look forward to sitting back with some friends and enjoying a cocktail while listening to them! I am always entranced by the rhythms and emotions in their music.
I hope I piqued your curiosity a bit because this event is the biggest Jazz festival in Germany – so really something special! And if you are a jazz lover looking to attend, be sure to check out the Jazz Rally Special, which the Breidenbacher Hof has created especially for the event. All in all, you have two great reasons to enjoy the Jazz Rally in Dusseldorf this year: Jazz and the Breidenbacher Hof!
