Istanbul's Year of Jazz and other Festivals

I thought it would be a good idea to post information about upcoming music, theatre and film festivals as well as similar events in Istanbul on this new annual thread, in case it would help you to plan your visit to Istanbul/Turkey.

Istanbul has been hosting some very good jazz and blues festivals every year since the 1990s.

I have listened to BB King (RIP) , Miles Davis (RIP) among quite a few other masters at different locations in the city in the past.

The first big jazz festivalof this year will also host some special musicians, nostalgic to new, For example John Baez has been a frequent guest and won the hearts of Turkish music fans.

A very significant event this year will be the concert of Tigran Hamasyan with the Yerevan State Chamber Choir from Armenia, where they will be interpreting traditional Armenian music in the old Byzantine church, Aya Irini, at the first courtyard of the Topkapi Palace.

Tickets will sell very quickly although usually expensive.
