Heineken Jazzaldia

Lover of jazz, seeker of the sun? Get the best of both worlds at Spain's oldest jazz festival, the Heineken Jazzaldia — San Sebastián Jazz Festival. Since 1966, the sun-bathed Basque city of San Sebastián has been attracting thousands of revellers for a series of free and ticketed events held at up to a dozen venues across the city including Trinity Square and Zurriola Beach. The five day festival has attracted big names — Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Charles Mingus, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis Ray Charles, B.B. King — and big numbers — more than 120,000 attendees last time around. A little advice? Book early and pack light.
