1-4 June, ninth Formentera Jazz Festival showcases hot local, national and international talent

foto 2023iv FJFThe Office of Tourism and Office of Culture of the Consell de Formentera are pleased to report that the ninth Formentera Jazz Festival will take place from 1 to 4 June 2023. Backed by the island's government, the festival started in 2015 with aspirations as an open musical encounter for jazz lovers and an attraction featuring various genres and backgrounds that both residents and visitors could enjoy.

Alejandra Ferrer, vice president and tourism councillor, hailed "the consolidation of a festival that gives visitors a reason to come and spend a few days in low season, and which has worked its way into the hearts of many residents". Ferrer also highlighted the sustainable aspect of the festival and FJF's work in awareness-raising.

For her part, Councillor Parellada offered that the free event "has earned an indisputable reputation for quality music and making culture accessible to all".

Director Maxwell Wright shared his satisfaction with the FJF trajectory and insisted that the 2023 programme was "a showcase for world-class artists, which will offer a unique and unforgettable musical experience. It's a chance to reflect on sustainability and enjoy the island's natural beauty, culture and gastronomy. We can't wait to welcome all attendees and come together behind a shared love for jazz and its offshoots in the most beautiful setting that Formentera has to offer".

Among this year's programmed artists are Duquende (one of the biggest singers on the Spanish scene), Ay Trick (Valencian act purveying matchless soul and funky rhythms), Ana Rossi (Argentina-bred and Barcelona-based singer who will present her latest release) and Alexandre Delange (French pianist and composer).

The complete FJF 2023 programme will be posted on www.formenterajazzfestival.info.
