The past weekend, there was the 37th edition of the Breda Jazz Festival. It’s one of the oldest in it’s kind. Many stages are scattered around the inner city which creates a great atmosphere! With 250,000 visitors, the festival attracted more people than ever, despite the bad weather.
My music teacher in high school, who was really passionate about his job and music in general, was crazy about jazz. He tried to teach us a lot about it, but I have to say I was not really into it during high school. I’m still not as crazy about it as he is, but I’ve started to like some easy jazz. I visited the Copenhagen Jazz Festival last summer, which I really enjoyed. Therefore it was nice that, after being abroad twice during the festival, I could join my best high school friends to the Jazz Festival in Breda (this has become a tradition). It’s hard to beat the combination of good music and good friends!
