Event of the Year 2020

Reykjavík Jazz is extremely grateful to receive the Icelandic Music Award as the Jazz and Blues Event of the Year 2020 🙏🏻❤️

This is a great honour and we are in flat 7th heaven 😎

For much of the year 2020 we didn’t know if it would be possible to go ahead with the festival. The final decision to push forward was made only two weeks before the start of the event. It’s safe to say that we could not have done this without a collective effort. Therefore Reykjavík Jazz would like to thank the city of Reykjavík, the Icelandic Musc Fund, Tónastöðin and Harpa Concert Hall for the support and collaboration. We would also like to thank our volunteers, you are invaluable. Finally we would like to thank all of our amazing musicians who performed at our festival, this award is yours as well as ours 🙌
