I'm planning a trip to Europe for 3 weeks next year (looking at April/May currently), and the goal of my trip is to see as many jazz shows as I possibly can.

I'm planning on visiting:

  • UK
  • Germany
  • Netherlands
  • Czech Republic
  • France
  • Sweden

Possibly others, too...

Are there lots of festivals happening around this time typically, or at least lots of clubs hosting artists?

    The Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival is on from the 13th to the 22nd of July 2018. There are usually a lot of shows on during that week. – MrAndySweet Nov 27 '17 at 12:16

    I'd google "jazz festival" in the cities/places your are wanting to go and look at the offerings. – Max Nov 27 '17 at 14:42
