The process to select the ten local groups who will play at the 58th San Sebastian Jazz Festival, from 21-25 July 2023, will kick off with the first of the 15 performances before an audience from which the final list will be drawn up.
This selection is especially backed by Gipuzkoa Provincial Council as part of the Katapulta Tour Gipuzkoa circuit to promote young local talents in the field of music and the performing arts while fostering the Gipuzkoa scene by providing support to clubs and organisers.
The performance venues are the Kutxa Kultur Kluba (in Tabakalera) and the Club Victoria Eugenia:
- Club Victoria Eugenia: free entry while places last. However, an invitation must be collected from the Victoria Eugenia Theatre ticket desk on the same day of the concert, from 17:00 onwards.
