Jazzsommar på Artipelag

Summer of Jazz

The summer of 2018 will be a jazz-filled one! Come listen to sweet harmonies in combination with delicious buffet food served prior to each concert. Over six summer evenings, we will present some of Sweden’s premier jazz artists.

All shows will be accompanied by a house band under the direction of Max Schultz. In collaboration with Artipelag, Johanna Sannefors will be the Program Manager for all six concerts.

We begin the summer with Viktoria Tolstoy on June 27th, followed by Per “Texas” Johansson on June 30th – with a secret special guest! A return performance by Svante Thuresson will be on July 11th, and Ida Sand will appear on July 14th. To round out the summer, Sharon Dyall and Peter Asplund will perform on July 18th. As an absolutely stunning finale, on July 19th a concert will be held with Edda Magnason.

"This year's summer concerts will be a thrilling jazz extravaganza with six beautiful events. The goal for me was to find artists who compliment the understated atmosphere at Artipelag. The challenge was to accommodate a crowd that will span ages from zero to a hundred years - and I think we have managed to do that."

– Johanna Sannefors, program manager for Summer Jazz at Artipelag
