Three days of live music!
ДЖАЗ НА ДНЕПРЕ 2018
Джаз не принадлежит одной нации и культуре — это подарок всему миру
“Jazz on the Dnieper “for many years was considered a visiting card of Dnepropetrovsk (now the Dnieper).
Founded in 1968, the festival collected the first-magnitude stars of an all-union scale and launched the musical careers of a whole galaxy of jazz musicians. However, the instability of the country in the new century forced “Jazz on the Dnieper” to take a long pause, which lasted until 2016. In September 2016, thanks to the program of the mayor Boris Filatov “Cultural Capital”, “Jazz on the Dnieper” got a new life.
The revived festival takes place at the height of the summer season. The main festival scene is on the Monastery Island – a wonderful corner of nature in the heart of the city. The format “open air” and the modern concept of the music program found a response from the audience and allowed to expand the jazz audience of the Dnieper.
In 2018, the festival was held on July 20-22, 2018, celebrating its 50th anniversary, traditionally collecting the best jazz musicians from around the world. In addition to concerts, a number of musical events were held at the main venue, in particular, educational master classes for students of the Conservatory of Music. Glinka, children’s music program, as well as a competition of young performers of the partner project “Jazz at the Pirse”
