Festival Description

The International Music Festival — Jazz Fest Sarajevo demonstrates the wealth, versatility and dynamism of the music scene today. In the previous eleven years we presented hundreds of musicians coming from 54 countries in more than 150 concerts. During the week of the festival, Sarajevo becomes the biggest of a small crossroad of the European music scene, with globally up to date programmes. It can be easily said that Jazz Fest Sarajevo charts an important date in the calendar of artistic music festivals worldwide.

Festival Story:

Free chocolate! This is only part of the many wonderful things about the Sarajevo Jazz Festival. Jazz musicians from around the world are featured the first week of November in this historically rich, culturally hip city. The festival began as a regular even in 1997. The jazz comes from groups in countries as varied as France, Hungary, Italy, Norway, and the USA. And the free chocolate? The festival includes a free workshop for children — with free chocolate.
