Bodrum to host jazz festival

Bodrum to host jazz festival in September
The International Bodrum Jazz Festival will be held between Sept. 1 and 17 with the support of the Jazz Association and Bodrum Municipality. 
Bodrum is one of the three most important places for the Jazz association and the festival will be on stage in September with a very strong program. 
This year will be first year and festival will be a different one that Bodrum locals and visitors are accustomed to. It will not only feature concerts in the castle or the ancient theater; it is also a social project.Local people and holiday makers will witness a walking orchestra in Bodrum’s bazaars; young musicians coming out of nowhere in the square and performing jazz; including musicians on trucks or gullets. This project will be unique to Bodrum.September was chosen for the event because July and August were already high season in the town and the festival will bring an activity at the end of the tourist season. The festival is sponsored by Turkcell,one of leading mobile operator in Turkey.
