8th Edition of the Delhi International Jazz Festival
1st – 3rd March 2019

The Embassy of India in Norway would like to inform that the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) is organizing the 8th Edition of Delhi International Jazz Festival scheduled to be held from 1st to 3rd March 2019 at Nehru Park, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi, India.

The 7th Edition of the Festival held in September 2017 was a big success with a footfall of over 10,000. Groups from France, Israel, Korea, Mexico and Spain along with three Indian Groups participated in the festival. In addition to the 3-day Festival in Delhi, the visiting groups also performed in other cities i.e. Goa, Bangalore, Pune, Mumbai and Jaipur.

The Jazz Festival had debuted in Delhi in 2011 and managed a great opening befitting a world-class event. Witnessing such enthusiasm of the Delhi crowd of more than 10,000 that had gathered, the ICCR has every year made it a point to organize the event at the same venue i.e. Nehru Park.

Delhi has declared itself as the International Destination for every event that India was not considered fit for until a while back. After the major cities of the world organized a Jazz festival each, Delhi too marked a spot in the world map as far as such events are concerned. The Jazz aficionados of the country particularly Delhi eagerly await the arrival of the Jazz festival every spring season before the scorching heat takes over the city. With Nehru Park being the best destination that one could think of, Delhi is once again ready for the 6th edition of the Jazz Festival.

The Jazz Festival this year will once again see performances by International artists and bands joined of course by our very own national artists. A genre that earlier was assumed had an audience only amongst the old has seen a drastic crack to this myth. The Jazz Festival in Delhi like previous years once again expects a huge turn around by the youth of Delhi and NCR.

ICCR will provide facilitation of grant of entry visa for India, local hospitality including boarding/lodging, intercity and local transportation; cost on presentation of programme including venue, technical and publicity for organizing the festival. The group will have to bear the cost of international passage, medical insurance and performance charges/fees.

Those who are interested may contact the Embassy of India to enable us to recommend the group for consideration of their participation in the festival.
