The Ljubljana Jazz Festival
When I said jazz is a staple in Ljubljana, I had in mind a particular jazz festival, which is actually the oldest jazz festival in Europe. The Ljubljana Jazz Festival turned 60 in 2019 and in all these years it featured many great jazz musicians including Miles Davis himself. Be sure to check it out if you’re in town during the festival (check out the dates on the official website). If not, worry not, there are other venues that will hopefully satisfy your music taste.
Jazz Club Gajo
Or Jazz Paradise as it’s now called. Probably the oldest and most well-known jazz club in Ljubljana. It just recently moved to a new location, but it still features more or less the same cool repertoire. Check out Jam Sessions on Mondays, they sometimes even host open mic nights, so feel free to invade the stage and jam, if you’re the musical type. See their Facebook page for more information.
