ArtLink Festival organises its 10th edition in cooperation with several cities and fortresses in the Western Balkans, including Belgrade, Novi Sad, Golubac and Ram.

The festival develops a model of inter-ministerial and inter-sectoral connections – music, festivals, cities, ecology, tourism and cultural heritage.

Brussels Jazz Orchestra (BJO) is not the kind of jazz orchestra that sticks to standards. They prefer to achieve the highest level by composing original music, creating unique arrangements and playing inventively as well as passionately. In fact, it really is jazz with a dynamic orchestral sound, with a classic strength in which each musician is also a brilliant soloist. Call it an ‘orchestrated passion for jazz’ that incites BJO to create world-class music.

In 2023, Brussels Jazz Orchestra blows out 30 candles. Festive activities include an anniversary tour in October 2023 with several musical guests including Bert Joris, Tutu Puoane, Lynn Cassiers and Osama Abdulrasol.
