Iggy Pop

Friday 14 August 2020 / 21.30 – 23.00 h. / Main Stage

“Iggy Pop at a jazz festival ?!”, we hear some of you grumbling. Yes! Once asked who he would like to see in the supporting act of The Stooges, the punk legend Sun Ra replied. (And so it happened.) He also recorded the very impressive jazz album Loneliness Road with pianist Jamie Saft, bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Bobby Previte. To say the least: Iggy Pop has something with jazz.
