Wicked Jazz Sounds Festival is a jazz festival in Amsterdam. Heading into its third edition, the festival offers a mixture of live and DJ sets across three stages.
Taking place at the famous NDSM Docklands, Wicked Jazz Sounds is not just a purist's destination. Contemporary jazz is fused with funk, soul, hip hop and electronic genres to create a whirlwind of sound aimed right at your hips.
Case and point, one of the most influential drummers of all time and co-founder of afrobeat, Tony Allen himself, will bring his band to the festival for a headlining set.
Located in northern Amsterdam, the NDSM Docklands is a post-industrial venue with views over the city skyline.
