During the Pentecost weekend from 17 to 19 May 2013 Düsseldorf will be transformed into a city of swing and dance. The 21st Düsseldorf Jazz Rally features more than 80 concerts across 35 different venues. As well as classic jazz, the artists will be performing music in the funk, soul, blues and rock genres.
Germany's biggest jazz festival is just one of the many attractions in this city of fashion and culture on the Rhine. For instance, Düsseldorf's Media Harbour is well worth a visit for its architecture alone. For lovers of art there is the Kunst im Tunnel gallery with its collection of works by young artists, while the Open Source Festival is an annual highlight showcasing the city's diverse, dynamic and often experimental clubbing and pop culture scene.
