Mondriaan Jazz Festival

Mondriaan Jazz Festival, also fondly known as MJAZZ, is a progressive and cutting-edge jazz festival in The Hague. The mesmerising line-up of artists explores the boundaries of different genres - of not just jazz, but also classical, hip hop and rock - and deftly anticipates the future of jazz.

This festival is a powerful one, where history is made, where once-off collaborations strike up and where new ideas are hatched. The music kicks off on the evening of October 11 at Het Koorhuis, and the main festival takes place on October 12 at PAARD and Het Koorhuis.
