The only festival in Spain dedicated to dixieland, the origin of Jazz, popular music from New Orleans from the end of the 19th century. Every year it holds more than thirty concerts and activities in different areas as theatres, bars, restaurants and also in the open air.
The Tarragona Dixieland Festival reaches its 29th edition. As part of its specialisation, it will take the rhythms to squares, streets and markets, while seeking to rediscover the most carefree spirit with a touch of the gulf. The jazz sounds linked to the origins of this style born in cosmopolitan and multicultural New Orleans will be mixed with the innovative trends of 21st century metal and percussion bands.
