History

Dutch Swing College Band performing at the North Sea Jazz Festival 1976

Dutch Swing College Band at the NSJF 1976

This musical extravaganza was founded by Paul Acket (1922-1992) in the year 1976. Acket was a business mogul who loved jazz music. He made a fortune during 60s publishing music magazines like Muziek Expres, Luister, and Popfoto. In the year 1975, Acket sold his company and invested millions into sponsoring and developing what has now become one of the largest music festivals of the world.

In 1976 the first North Sea Jazz Festival took place and was hosted at The Hague (a city in Holland). About 9,000 festival attendees were serenaded by 300 musicians at 6 podiums for 30 hours. Acket passed away in 1992 and since then the reins have been transferred to the concert promoter Mojo.

Some of the most prominent names in jazz music have performed on the North Sea Jazz Festival, names include Miles Davis, Sarah Vaughan, Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Count Basie and members of the Dutch avant–garde.

Show More History...

From 1986, the North Sea Jazz Festival had served as the host of the Bird Awards. This prestigious award is given to musicians with exceptional talent to help further their musical career. In the year 2006, the Bird Awards was renamed the Paul Acket Award in honor of the spiritual father and founder of the festival.

The festival has grown from strength to strength over the years and now hosts 1200 artists from all over the world who come to perform on the festival’s 15+ stages.

In recent years the North Sea Jazz Festival (NSJF) has attracted over over 23,000 visitors each day to the event. Some of the artists which have graced the NSJF in past years include: Paul Anka, Miles Davis, BB King, Ella Fitzgerald, Erykah Badu, Al Jarreau, Candy Dulfer, include Nat Adderley, Lionel Hampton, Trijntje Oosterhuis, The Zawinul Syndicate, Steve Coleman, Ibrahim Ferrer, Alicia Keys, Wynton Marsalis, and Jamiroquai.

New and “breakthrough” acts are also given the opportunity to become part of the preeminent lineup of artists that perform at the NSJF each year. Tania Maria, Rachelle Ferrell, Shirley Horn, and Roy Hargrove are just a few well known artists that made their debut performances at the NSJF.

The venues for the North Sea Jazz Fest has changed over the years. Originally the event was hosted at the ‘World Forum’ Convention Center of the Netherlands (formally known as the Nederlands Congres Centrum (NCC)), this was until 2005 where it was moved over the ‘The Hague’ due to the demolition of the ‘Statenhal’ (a separate building of the World Forum where many music concerts have been held in the past) in order to make room for the new Europol building (European Police Office).

When more than half of the World Forum Convention Center’s complexes were demolished, the organizers deemed the site inadequate for the needs of the festival and its thousands of attendees.

The venue was changed yet again in 2006 to accommodate a larger crowd and to provide a more permanent venue for future years. The selected venue was the Ahoy conference center, Rotterdam.

In the year 2011, the first “Night Concerts” were presented to the festival attendees. Prince played 3 nights consecutively and the year after (2012) Lenny Kravitz was the featured act.

In the year 2013, the NSJF and Rotterdam renewed their partnership for another five years. What was once known as the North Sea Jazz Festival will now officially be known as the Port of Rotterdam North Sea Jazz Festival.

Another interesting note is that in May of 2013, the NSJF opened a club called the North Sea Jazz Club which is located at Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam.

Venue

The 2014 North Sea Jazz Festival venue is Ahoy, a convention centre in Rotterdam. Address: Ahoyweg 10, 3084 BA Rotterdam, Netherlands (more info on Wikipedia).

In the gallery below you can find the floor map and photographs of the venue.

Food & Drinks

The Ahoy venue is very well catered for when it comes to serving food and drinks to the thousands of people who attend its various events throughout the year.

The Ahoy Plaza has it’s own dedicated food and drinks venues that serve top quality (and affordable) meals and drinks throught the festival period. You will find 4 different restaurents/cafes in the Plaza:

Restaurant Floyd - Ahoy Rotterdam

Restaurant Floyd – Ahoy Rotterdam

Restaurant Floyd provides à la carte menu options at a slightly higher price point. This is a perfect venue for business meetings, entertaining clients or a quiet meal for any number of people. Reservations can be made by phone (+31 10 2933755) or email (reserveren@ahoy.nl).

Resturant RiVers is a self-service restaurant geared towards people looking for a ‘quick eat’ prior to concerts. You can go in and out in half an hour and provide a good amount of food to see you through for the rest of the entertainment. In contrast to Restaurant Floyd, Restaurant RiVers is very informal. No reservation is required, they have 700 seats for you to choose from.

Vrienden Van Amstel Live Cafe

Vrienden Van Amstel Live Cafe

Vrienden van Amstel LIVE! Café provides light ‘bar snacks’ and a wide variety of drinks. Many people stay here after the entertainment to ‘wind down’ or simply to stay for a while to wait for exiting traffic to disperse before hitting the road. Drink prices are reasonable, food is OK.

Buffets – There are a number of buffets spotted around the arena grounds that allow for a snack on the go in between acts. Normally situated close to the entrances/exits.

To pay for food and drinks you will need special tokens, which can be purchased at the desk in the entrance hall and at token machines (payable by debit card). At the end of the festival, you can return unused tokens for a refund at the desk near the exit. – Source: North Sea Jazz

Transport options from to the festival

As such, festival attendees must allow for this when they calculate travel time. The timetable also applies for night trains. Accurate and updated schedules are provided at www.ns.nl.

Show Bus, Car and further transport options...

SUBWAY/BUS

Ahoy Rotterdam may also be reached via the Metro or subway. There are also more than 30 bus lines that stop at Ahoy, one of the most popular is the Metro Line D leaves Rotterdam Central Station. Metro Line E travels from The Haque to Ahoy with a stop at Zuidplein. During festival days, the trains extend their night trips between and Rotterdam Central Station.

When using the bus, subway, and tram in Rotterdam a smart card is required. This card used in public transport is called the “OVchipkaart.” Non-residents can get a special card that they can discard afterwards. In the meantime, the BOB bus requires a special ticket worth €4.50. For more info, please go to www.ov-chipkaart.nl.

ROTTERDAM WELCOME CARD

A Rotterdam Welcome Card is a chip card which is available to visitors. This card allows for use of public transport for one, two, or three days depending on the type.

More information about the chip card is available at www.rotterdam.info.

CAR

For those who are driving to the North Sea Jazz Festival, there are road signs that clearly say “P-Ahoy.” Due to the immense traffic jam and poor availability of parking space our advice is to opt for public transport.

Hotels & Accommodation

Check out the nicest hotel in Rotterdam (Hilton Rotterdam Hotel)

*** Hotel prices rise exponentially as you get closer to the festival dates. Book early to avoid disappointment. ***

Hotels Combined

If you are on a super shoe-string budget then search HostelWorld and get a bed in Rotterdam for as little as €12.50! - (Private rooms €16.50+). Alternatively check out airbnb and rent an apartment for cheaper than staying in a hotel.

I would recommend checking Rotterdam hotel reviews on TripAdvisor prior to placing any booking. Alternatively, why don’t you try something different and rent someones apartment during the festival period at AirBnB?! Click here for a free £15 credit towards your first booking!

Arboretum Trompenburg

The Arboritum Trompenburg is a verdant oasis for the travel weary. The gardens contain around 750 species of Hosta and other beautiful bulbs, perennials and trees. The impressive collection of thousands of plant specimen is contained within an immense park that also has canals, ponds, and waterways. There are bridges placed over clean, tranquil waters. The berries and flowers are typically very lush in the months of April to October.

A glasshouse features a collection of succulents, birds, a fuchia collection, and American swamp turtles. The nearby “Hof-laan” is an amazing representation of a mixture 18th, 19th, and 20th-century Dutch architecture.
