In 2006 the name changed to Blue Note Records Festival, in 2008 it changed in the name Gent Jazz Festival.
At Gent Jazz Festival, both international mainstream and avant-garde jazz are 'served', as fusion of jazz with other musical genres. During the early years the festival was always with the Ghent Festivities. In 2011, during the tenth edition, the Gent Jazz Festival attracted 38,000 visitors over 8 festival days.
