“No matter how experienced you are, the emotions and butterflies in your stomach that you feel during the festival week will never fade away. We have literally hundreds of people behind this festival who put their hearts into it and want the experience of all participants, whether they are the audience or artists, to be exceptional. Jazz in the Park is a simple festival that focuses only on the important things: quality music, a sincere approach to the audience, and a very enjoyable and relaxing experience for everyone who comes through our gates. Today, it seems more important than ever to be this way. The experience we’ve designed this year is completely different from what other festivals in the city or the country offer, partly because of the musical genre, and then because of us, as we always try to bring something new. I hope we have as many participants as possible who will enjoy everything we’ve prepared for them,” said Alin Vaida, founder of Jazz in the Park, in a press conference on Tuesday, cited by Agerpres news agency.

Furthermore, the “Meetings on the Porch” return to Jazz in the Park after the success of last year’s first edition. The discussions will revolve around music and will address topics such as the future of music education, the role of music in society, and the relationship between artificial intelligence and musical creation. There will also be meet & greet sessions with bands and artists from the festival. Tickets are still available here.
