Since 1960, when it was founded as a festival presenting classical jazz bands from former Yugoslavia, the Ljubljana Jazz Festival has kept pace with international developments in the genre. Today it provides a connoisseur's choice of music and offers an exciting insight into creativity in contemporary jazz.
At the 25 concerts will perform artists from 13 different countries, including big-name star Avishai Cohen. Most of the concert will be held at Council of Europe Park and will be free of charge. For the six indoor concerts, tickets will be sold.
