It all started with the idea of two jazz fans to organize a summer evening festival to liven up Basel's city center and its most beautiful squares with traditional jazz and at the same time to provide a platform for the many jazz bands from the region to play in front of a wide audience.
Within more than 30 years, the idea of these two jazz fans has grown into what is probably the world's largest one-day jazz event, where - as in the first year - all concerts can still be attended free of charge.
In addition to the voluntary work of the organizing team, this unique event is made possible by the commitment of numerous sponsors, patrons and partners.
The impressive key data of "Em Bebbi sy Jazz":
-around 30 venues, 24 of them open-air
-around 70 orchestras/performers, 11 street bands, 3 choirs
-around 700 musicians and singers
-more than 70'000 visitors!
