The festival was launched in 2014, and immediately became Berlin’s biggest Jazz festival. XJAZZ means exploration, spontaneity and interactive grooves (...XJAZZ philosophy).
By opening up the jazz spectrum to include genres like improvised electronica and minimalist classical music, the festival encourages jazz and its continuing influence on all forms of contemporary music. The festival places a strong emphasis on contrasting and surprising elements and taking place in non typical venues (like techno- & indie-clubs, churches).
