The Berlin Jazz Experiment is not just another music festival in the city, but an inclusive platform in the heart of Berlin. The impulse generator for the experiment is jazz music, place of event will be the Holzmarkt. There, in between old and new, conscious of the past and the future, the Berlin Jazz Experiment will pitch their tents for three days to celebrate the spirit of jazz that is reflected in the metropolis on the Spree: Sticking together, getting together, playing and living together. The Berlin Jazz Experiment creates the space and the time to delve into jazz, to reduce prejudices, to take part in the current debates and to exchange ideas. A musical experiment – in, with and for Berlin.
