Vossa Jazz is the place to be for jazz lovers as well as those with an interest in music with a twist. Taking place 18-20 March, the programme is packed with top names including Jarle Bernhoft, Dave Holland, Susanne Sundfør and not least Nils Økland, the ground-breaking artist who is the commissioned musician for 2016. The jazz festival is a yearly highlight in the small town of Voss, just an hour from Bergen. Beautifully situated between fjords and mountains it has the perfect surroundings for a music festival that is out of the ordinary. While topnotch jazz tunes are in focus, the festival heads take pride in an original take on the genre.
