The Jazz in de Gracht (literally Jazz in the Canal) festival is different from other festivals. Instead of huddling in front of various stage, this festival takes place at the canals of The Hague. Find yourself a nice spot along the edge of the canal, order a drink at one of the bars and wait for the musicians to float over to serenade the audience before floating off to the next area.
