Each year, the festival Amersfoort Jazz pays particular attention to World Jazz from a selected country abroad. In recent years the festival’s focus has been on World Jazz from Thailand, South-Africa, Spain, Belgium and Israel. In 2020 Amersfoort Jazz will present the Focus on the vibrant World Jazz scene from Hungary. The highlight of the particular focus element at Amersfoort Jazz 2020 is the special Focus Night in the theatre De Lieve Vrouw on Saturday. May 16, 2020.

In addition to their performances at the Focus Night, all the artists from Hungary play at several other venues during the Amersfoort Jazz festival 2020. The Focus element at the Amersfoort Jazz Festival is traditionally crowned by a Grande Finale Concert at the ‘open air theatre square’ Lieve Vrouwekerkhof, with all the Hungarian artists, combined in a dynamic, inspiring and adventurous setting.
