SAN JAVIER INTRNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL
The San Javier International Jazz Festival began in 1998 as the result of the efforts of a group of jazz fans. Today it’s one of the most important cultural events in Murcia, having achieved national and international importance. Every year the festival brings together the most significant figures in jazz, as well as artists from other musical genres such as blues, soul, bossa nova and funk.
The festival takes place in the idyllic town of San Javier, between June 29th & July 27th. This awesome town stands on the coast of the Mediterranean in southeastern Spain and is nothing short of the perfect location for feeling that relaxed jazz vibe.
Thanks to Murcia’s Corvera International Airport, getting to the festival is in itself as much of a breeze as the climate, which is much more mellow than other areas of Spain.
