The Second OCT-LOFT Jazz Festival

OCT-LOFT, as a pioneering art zone in Shenzhen, is going to embrace more than 20 world-class jazz bands from 16 countries for its 2nd jazz festival, which starts from October 8, 2012 and lasts to October 23, 2012.


Looking back the first OCT-LOFT jazz festival, it achieved a great success and attracted jazz masters like Eddie Gomez, the Latin Grammy award-winner who had been on the cutting edge of music over 40 years, and also famous jazz bands like Estudiantina Ensemble and Trio d’en bas, etc..


Inheriting from the first OCT-LOFT jazz festival, the second one continues drawing great jazz artists from all over the world to give our audience a fantastic audio-visual feast. Kim Myhr & Streifenjunko will be the first program that is going to present on Old Heaven Bookstore. Later, more wonderful bands and artists will come to the stages, such as We Do Jazz Big Band, Luca Ciarla Quartet, and a local jazz band Xinghai Modern Music Grand Orchestra China, etc..


Jazz, as a kind of open and free live music, suits both refined and popular taste since it was born. It can be played on an elegant stage with spotlight and also can be played on the street or bars. In addition, the jazz festival is becoming popular among people. It even turns into one of the most important cultural indicator in many major cities over the world. The festival, to be held in the OCT-LOFT, provides a chance for Shenzhen people to admire and closely touch top jazz music and musicians. More importantly, playing music in a pure art space without too much commercial elements mingled in is a vision of creators and the soul of the festival. We wish this coming festival a complete success.
