Visit the Gateshead International Jazz Festival

From March 4th to 6th, Sage Gateshead will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the UK’s biggest jazz festival outside London.

This year the Gateshead International Jazz Festival will feature the Spring Quartet, a brilliant ensemble on its first visit to the UK. The group brings together Jack DeJohnette, the drummer at the heart of many of the landmark jazz groups over the past four decades; heavyweight saxophonist Joe Lovano; bass player Esperanza Spalding, the first jazz artist to win a Best New Artist Grammy Award; and pianist Leo Genovese.

Robert Glasper joins the festival line-up for a late night set in Hall Two and will be drawing influences from jazz, hip hop, R&B and rock.

Another major highlight of the festival is an appearance by one of the world’s favourite jazz guitarists, Bill Frisell. This year’s event will also be welcoming the return of acclaimed UK jazz composer Django Bates with his Belovèd Trio in a new partnership with the Grammy-nominated Norrbotten Big Band from northern Sweden.

Visit the festival on a short city break and book yourself into a great Newcastle hotel.
