From 28 September to 1 October, jazz returns to the Chellah in the Moroccan capital Rabat for a 22nd edition of the festival organised by the European Union in Morocco in partnership with the Ministry of Culture and Communication. Swaying to fusion of European and Moroccan jazz, Rabat will shake to the vibes offered by a talented array of musicians.

The oldest Jazz festival in Morocco has become a reference on the world music scene, offering musical exchanges between the two shores of the Mediterranean.

In addition to concerts at the historical Chellah citadel, the festival is also offering masterclasses, four free concerts at the Bab Mrissa stage in Salé and other surprises.

At the Chellah from September 28 to October 1, doors open at 7.30 pm. Tickets are on sale all day at the Chellah from 18 September, with the option of a pass for the whole festival or individual tickets for each event.
