A fixture on Hannover’s event calendar since the Swinging Sixties, Hannover’s international jazz festival brings in an audience from far and wide. In fact, Swinging Hannover regularly attracts around 35,000 people to see some of the best names in jazz from around the world, in a wonderful open-air space in front of Hannover’s beautiful New Town Hall. A regular highlight of the festival is the ‘Drum Battle’, where some of the best and most extravagant jazz drummers compete against each other for an ultimate prize. This is, of course, a must-see event for jazz lovers. Swinging Hannover usually takes place over Ascension Day in May.
