There are eight concerts forming part of the Elche Jazz Festival

It is true to say that lovers of music or sport, for example, will often travel long distances to see their favourite band, DJ or team perform.

And while that is true, it’s always better when the event that you want to go and see is right on your doorstep – or thereabouts.

As from tomorrow, Thursday 28 June, Elche will be holding its annual Jazz Festival.
