  Canal Street

Canal Street (Arendal Jazz & Blues Festival) is a yearly jazz and blues festival in Arendal, first presented in 1996.

The festival is known for its use of unusual venues where interesting surroundings go hand in hand with musical experiences. Jazz at the Lighthouse at lille Torungen fyr, bathing blues & swimming jazz in Merdø Uthavn, bohemian jazz at Kolbjørnsvik and ”Føling på fyllinga” at the local waste dump, Heftingsdalen, are some of the examples.

Canal Street is one of few Norwegian festivals that feature both jazz and blues as main genres. This gives a great opportunity to show two genres that historically are closely connected, and thereby you can enjoy all the excitement from featuring the two genres. And, we also include rock and world music.
