The International Istanbul Jazz Festivals provide a large selection of Jazz Music performances with the amazing participation of international musicians and singers from different parts of the planet. That is why this festival is quite important for people who enjoy listening to Jazz Music. Nevertheless, since 1994, the festival not only offers Jazz music performances but also provides pop, blues, reggae and rock music presentation.

During the last recent years, the Istanbul Jazz Festival has chosen new interesting cultural venues across the city to present several music concerts. The concerts were basically realized in many streets of the city. As an example we can mention the acclaimed presentation of a famous quintet of the musician Herbie Hancock at the Open Air theatre Cemil Topuzlu, and the presentation of Zakir Hussain, a professional percussionist in the famous Archeological Museum.

In addition, the streets of the hectic Beyoglu District were chosen in 2009 to be part of the festival. Two important stages were set up to present some concerts. This festival has brought together many important international singers and musicians such as Eric Clapton, Björk and Lenny Kravitz, just to mention a few.
