Once again this year, we are pleased to be Présentateurs Prestige (Prestigious Presenters) of the 24th edition of the Saguenay Jazz and Blues Festival. Thousands of fans of all jazz & blues sounds will be able to see the most talented artists from here and elsewhere.
Through fourteen venues, over one hundred and fifty artists will perform in front of thousands of spectators and offer breathtaking performances. As the programming committee is constantly on the lookout for world music news, its goal is to always present the most popular artists available at the time of the event. This is how the Saguenay Jazz and Blues Festival regularly hosts nominated artists and winners of the most prestigious Galas from across the country (Grammys, Juno Awards, ADISQ, LYS blues, Maple Blues Awards, etc.)
The intimacy of most venues offers fans a direct contact with the various groups and musicians in the program. Among the objectives: to allow young up-and-coming musicians to work alongside professional artists through the Place aux jeunes component and to give regional Jazz & Blues musicians the opportunity to perform in a professional setting. But above all, to provide fans with new and unforgettable musical sensations through quality programming of international caliber. Thus, the Saguenay Jazz and Blues Festival is committed to the cultural development of the region and contribute to promoting the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region throughout the country and beyond.
The festival will take place from April 23 to 27, 2019 in various rooms across Saguenay.
