Jazz – in english

Musik i Syd contributes as a partner in many different contexts in the southern Swedish jazz scene – a jazz scene that is very alive and which consists of many active musicians, jazz clubs, jazz festivals and other event organisers. We work with musicians and organisers, and also carry out exchanges with other countries.


Jazz clubs and jazz event organisers

The region has a rich jazz music life, including several active clubs and event organisers. Musik i Syd also has an ambition to contribute to jazz music being experienced in environments other than the traditional ones – such as in concert halls, cafes and churches. This is appreciated and requested, and is not least a good way to broaden the potential audience for jazz music.

Here are some of the clubs with which we work together:





Jazz musicians

Many of Sweden’s foremost jazz musicians live in our southern Swedish region, both individual musicians and groups. Some groups consist of both Swedish and Danish musicians. An international stage for jazz is created in southern Sweden and in the Zealand region of Denmark by the many active event organisers working together with artists with international reputations.

Jazz festivals

Musik i Syd supports and collaborates with several of the southern Swedish jazz festivals.

The biggest commitment is without a doubt that we are the organiser of the Ystad Sweden Jazz Festival, together with the association Ystad Jazz. The festival will be held for the second time on 4-7 August this year – and despite still being a relative newcomer, the festival has already established itself as one of the biggest Swedish jazz events of the summer. The Swedish Radio P2 channel will also broadcast live from the festival this year.

Musik i Syd also works together with other festivals, such as the Kristianstad/Åhus Jazz Festival and the  Smyge Jazz Festival


Concert series

Musik i Syd also collaborates with organisers that arrange concert series during the summer months, such as Jazz Under Stjärnorna (Jazz under the Stars) in Brantevik in the Swedish region of Skåne, and Goodnight Sun in Malmö. We are also involved in supporting jazz elements in events such as the Helsingborgsdagarna (Helsingborg Days).



Musik i Syd actively works to achieve an increased jazz music exchange between Sweden and other countries, and participates in fairs such as JazzAhead in Bremen and Apap New York. Musik i Syd is engaged in exchanges and collaborations with several international jazz venues and festivals, such as the Jazztage festival in Hamburg organised by Jazzbüro Hamburg, the Edinburgh Jazz Festival, Islay Jazz, Elbjazz and many more.
