Kamasi Washington and Donny McCaslin wow at So What’s Next? Festival – Photo Report


Jazz was just the starting point at an eclectic fifth edition of the So What's Next? jazz and beyond festival that took place in Eindhoven, Netherlands in early November.

The Muziekgebouw Eindhoven venue was at the heart of the festival – alongside several other locations in the city centre, where 55 live acts performed over three packed days and nights.

Headline concerts and showcases from established and emerging jazz artists covered hip hop, soul, world, electronics and classical music. Artists appearing included Jacob Collier, Avishai Cohen (trumpet), Zara McFarlane, Ambrose Akinmusire, Donny McCaslin with drummer Zach Danziger – all pictured below - and Kamasi Washington (above).

So What's Next? is organised by Stichting So What's Next? in collaboration with partners Muziekgebouw Eindhoven, North Sea Jazz / Mojo Concerts and Brabant C.
