Kuwait Jazz Festival

The Kuwait Jazz Festival (also known as the Gulf Jazz Fetival) is held during the spring season at Radisson SAS Hotel, every year. It features various styles of jazz performed by internationally renowned jazz artists, and also involves participation of local Kuwaiti musicians. The Jazz festival is the only annual regional music festival of its kind.

Ever-since its inception 15 years ago, the festival has gained popularity across the region, including in Dubai, Bahrain and Qatar. The increasing popularity of the jazz festival in Kuwait shows the increasing interest and enthusiasm for musical variety and the passion to watch a live performance by both Kuwaitis and expatriates in Kuwait.
