Countdown starts for Istanbul Jazz Festival

Featuring over 40 concerts and more than 300 local and foreign artists, the 18th Istanbul Jazz Festival will kick off Friday, continuing through until July 19.

Building on its success last year, the second Tünel Feast will be run the first weekend of the festival with a program even more comprehensive than last year’s schedule. The “festival within the festival” begins Saturday and will continue until the late hours with concerts, workshops, special exhibitions, treats and events in the streets throughout Beyoğlu, Şişhane, Galata and Asmalımescit, alongside the main stages at Tünel and Galata squares.

The festival is being organized by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts, or İKSV, and sponsored by Garanti Bank.
