MOORJAZZ FESTIVAL – International I will be the first lap and all-day festival starting in the morning with children’s jazz. The adult program starts at 12 noon and continues until 2 p.m. 02:00, where one of the most acclaimed, new Danish crossover bands Kalaha sets the stage for festivals. Before then, people had the opportunity to experience Mezzoforte, Espen Eriksen Trio feat. Andy Sheppard, Abekejser, Bo Stief’s Future Dreams and many others. Between the concerts there are talks with the musicians, sofa session with Niels Christian Cederberg and Jonas Visti from P8 Jazz as well as musician’s clinic. The Moor Jazz Festival becomes a full-body jazz experience, where you can also be lucky at overtly intimate concerts at the top of the preserved old college or go all-in and buy tickets with a three-course menu at the on-site restaurant Gastro 13.
MOORJAZZ FESTIVAL is a unique work between Fermaten and Swinging Europe, which has joined forces in creating and cultural events that can also mark Herning on the musical map within the jazz genre. Also in the organizer group is Niels Overgaard, who is behind the music blog Jazznyt, which is one of the country’s most recognized music blogs.
MOORJAZZ FESTIVAL takes place at HHHerning, the current Herning University College. The striking, tall house today is a listed building filled with art and history – and a fantastic, evocative setting at local festivals in.
