Sibiu Jazz Festival
The Sibiu Jazz Festival is considered to be unique in Romania, in terms of its longevity, consistency and the impressive number of celebrities that honored it with their presence. It is the oldest of its kind in the country and one of the oldest jazz festivals worldwide, which made a good cause for Sibiu to be declared „Romania’s Jazz Capital” in the 80’s. In the world, there are not many festivals of jazz that can boast with over 44 years of successful activity given that the entire history of jazz is barely 100 years old.
The designated purpose of Sibiu Jazz Festival is to continuously and constantly revitalize the jazz movement in Romania in the spirit of jazz tradition in Sibiu, by connecting it with the European and international jazz trends and by promoting Romanian values abroad and thereby becoming a cultural stray point both for the city and to all jazz fans in Romania.
