Stockholm Jazz Festival is one of the country's oldest and biggest jazz festivals, spread over ten days in mid-October. The annual mecca for jazz lovers takes place across 60 venues on the capital city's best indoor stages. Thanks to the talented artists the festival has pulled in, namely Jamie Cullum, Angelique Kidjo, and the Wayne Shorter Quartet, it has claimed great fame among European jazz fests and in the music world in general.
