10th International Alanya Jazz Days

 10th International Alanya Jazz Days

Jazz Festival, called “International Alanya Jazz Days”, which will be held in Alanya this year for the 10th time, is always a long-awaited event for me, because, first, I am a great music lover, second, jazz is one of my favorite music styles and third, the organizers of the Jazz Festival have a good taste and always bring somebody interesting.


This year we will be able to enjoy jazz music in Alanya Harbor every evening at 21:00 between September 20 and September 23. I expect that this year the festival will be even better than usual, because it is its anniversary. The Festival has been held since 2002 on the last week of September or the first week of October at the Kızıl Kule (Red Tower) and hosts Turkish and international jazz musicians in a series of four free concerts. On rainy days, as it happened last year, the concerts move to Alanya Cultural Center.

Hopefully, this year’s weather will be more generous and the jazz lovers will be able to enjoy jazz music in the harbor of Alanya. Sometimes it is not possible to attend the festival all 4 days, so, I usually try to learn about the artists to perform and choose which concerts to go to.
