This is one of the most popular jazz festivals in Warsaw due to at least the following reasons: the beautiful surroundings of Warsaw’s Old Town (yes, maybe it’s not that old after all, still, it’s beautiful) make the concerts an unforgettable experience; the Jazz Art Foundation in Warsaw, which happens to invite great guests from all around the world to play their concerts in the city, and the fact that concerts are free, as opposed to many other jazz concerts. They will leave you with enough money to go to another concert soon.
The concerts are in the open air, so if the weather is nice there is just nothing that could be better than you + jazz + cold beer. However, be careful when choosing a restaurant, as most of them will be very busy during the concert.
This year, Jazz in the Old Town is hosting many great artists, among them John Pizzarelli & Jobim, James Carter Quartet, Christian Balkanic’s Trio Infernal or the Polish Marek Napiórkowski Sextet.
If you want to see the band as well as hear them, make sure you arrive early enough. Definitely a must-experience for all jazz lovers! This year’s program is already online.
