Formentera Jazz Festival, one of the main summer events in Las Pitiusas, celebrates its Edition 6 this year. Initially, the organizers announced that the event would have a more intimate format and would be held in Formentera from August 21 to 23, 2020. However, due to the insecurity caused by the current health situation, they have been forced to reformulate the festival to one editing audiovisual content via social networks.
However, it is still a great opportunity to enjoy great established and emerging artists from the world of local, national and international jazz and to explore the confluences of jazz with genres such as Cuban music, jazz rock and Latin jazz.
Thus, Ibiza Jazz Festival will finally be the days 22 y 23 August 2020 and it will be celebrated through their social networks.
