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.
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 and you have to sit there or at least book a table well in advance.
This year, Jazz in the Old Town is hosting many great artists, among them Paolo Fresu Devil Quartet, Gerardo Nunez Quartet or David Murray Quartet. If you want to see the band as well as hear it, make sure you arrive early enough. Definitely a must-experience for all jazz lovers!
