Welcome to the Blueboat Festival!
Already since 2002 the “Blue Boat” is setting sail each year with about 35 participants between 13 and 27 years of age. So far, there have been participants from Poland, Denmark, Sweden, Lithuania, Mexiko, the Netherlands and Germany.
Every year lasting personal and musical friendships are formed. Especially interesting is to meet again people from previous years as well as the integration of new participants. Besides the workshop and events at some of the most beautiful locations of our island, being part of our unique festival are also walks on the beach, long nights at camp fires and of course jam sessions in the evenings.
The priority is not competition but being together with other musicians. You will make new contacts, listen to each other in concerts, discuss, arrange, improvise, have fun and get to know the island of Rügen. Guests and locals are welcome to simultaneously witness refreshing, young jazz and enjoy their summer.
At the same time as there are concerts all over Rügen, the workshop is open to bands and individual participants – improvisational skills in different styles are taught and practised in mixed groups, an international and young team of teachers is introducing jazz to everyone who is interested.
