CrossCurrents is the newest, hottest festival in Maastricht. Initiated by Jazz Maastricht, they’re taking Jazz out of the box and filling the Sphinxkwartier with a combination of music, science, art and film. Jazz is all about experimentation, connection, adventure and exploration. With the help of eight partner organizations (Jazz Maastricht, Conservatorium Maastricht, IMPACT, Lumière Cinema, Pathé, Muziekgieterij, The Artist and the Other, UNU-Merit, Maastricht University & Cinesud genres and disciplines are crossed, to put together a completely different kind of festival.

Its enough to get our heads spinning with excitement!
