About festival JazzFest...

One of the most prominent representatives of the modern jazz and a double holder of the most prestigious Grammy award. That is the American jazz-fusion quartet Yellowjackets. Together with an exceptional singer Luciana Souza, the Grammy holder, too, they will be the top stars of 35th international jazz festival JAZZFEST KARLOVY VARY – SOKOLOV 2018. From September 22 to October 27 there will be six concerts held, both in big halls and clubs.

For the last nineteen years, the Festival has been organized by the Jazzový kruh company (Jazz circle) with its director and an active participant of the festival in one person – the saxophonist Milan Krajíc. The festival has been traditionally supported by the Municipality of Karlovy Vary and the Karlovy Vary Region and held under the auspices of the Mayor of Karlovy Vary Municipality Ing. Petr Kulhánek.

The festival focuses on modern jazz, overlapping to different branches and to other music genres, including the symphonic music, inviting outstanding musicians coming both from our country and abroad. The festival dramaturgy seeks to satisfy the demanding expert audience as well as the large non-jazz public.
