The European Blackout Northsea Jazz Festival


(Paris and Rotterdam)

We've created the ultimate 10-day European travel experience! 2 beautiful cities, breathtaking sights, and VIP experience at the largest indoor music festival in the world!

We'll start in Paris with a Black History tour and ThrowBLACK party under the stars on the world-famous Seine River! Think Soul Train, dashikis, afros, stacked heels, bell-bottoms, disco. Can you imagine a bunch of black folks in dashikis and afros...celebrating Juneteenth ON July 4th in Paris...under the Eiffel Tower? No, it's not a movie. It's really happening, and we want you to experience it for yourself!

Then we’ll take the bullet train to the Netherlands, for a VIP Experience at the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam. You've never seen a festival itinerary this extensive. You will literally need to PLAN who you want to see, because there are so many concerts and shows happening over 3 days. The VIP lounge, with unlimited food and drinks is a great place to people watch and unwind. You may even see your favorite artist!

Enjoy VIP Experiences to Live Music Performances

For many African American musicians, “jazz” represents black virtuosity and accomplishment. Jazz is more than just music - it’s a way of life, being, and thinking. Almost every other music genre was influenced by it.

What better way to celebrate jazz than VIP experiences to world-class music festivals and be serenaded by the best in the world?
