Blues’n Jazz Rallye 2015
The Blues and Jazz Rallye has the potential to surprise first time visitors, due to its size as well as the unique setting that doesn’t fail to impress. Starting at the park behind Scott’s bar on the River Alzette down to the Rives de Clausen and the Abtei de Neumünster, the ‘Grund’ becomes an open-air festival that features a multitude of jazz and blues bands from across the world. 57 concerts on 11 open-air stages together with the adjacent bars along the river contribute to a unique experience at the foot of the historical fortress that overlooks the valley.
There are numerous food stalls where you can grab something to eat or quench your thirst. If you are planning to attend from outside the city, be aware that hotel prices tend to increase substantially. The best access to this FREE festival is via foot and the frequent shuttle buses from Hamilius and Gare that drop people off at the entrance of the Rives de Clausen. You can also get there through the ‘montée de la Pétrusse’ road, or the lift at the Holy Ghost plateau.
The festival is on Saturday 25th July, starting at 7.00 pm. More information can be found at the LCTO (Luxembourg City Tourist Office).
