Jazz em Agosto became one of the most popular Jazz events in Lisbon.

Happening Gulbenkian Foundation, visitors can expect to assist a jazz concert at the outdoor amphitheatre among Gulbenkian garden's greenery or at the as impressive Gulbenkian's grand auditorium.

The agenda is bold and fresh, and this year, for the first time in this fest, the entire festival is organised around a single musician. And the choice could hardly fall on a more striking name – both for the history of the festival and for the fundamental course of music that we have been able to hear in the last decades. This musician is John Zorn, with a highly personal style, whose activity is as prolific as it is varied, so essential as a soundtrack for this time that he has become an unquestionable symbol not only of New York’s artistic avant-garde, as a creator, but also as an explorer for new territories and as someone who draws together a community that revolves around him.
