One of Italy’s most acclaimed saxophonists, Vittorio Cuculo, winner of the “Best Band” award at EUROPAfest 2021 with his band, returns to Bucharest. Accompanied by top musicians, Cuculo manages to vividly and convincingly interpret the spirit of bebop. The same evening will feature performances by Shenandoah Jazz Project from Spain, Black Pantone from France, and David Luca Trio from Romania. The concert is designed as a jam session, with spontaneous reactions and fresh new sounds.

From July 8th to 14th, at 8:00 PM, the Auditorium Hall will host two jazz bands daily, bringing the latest trends from the world’s jazz scenes to the Romanian audience. The capital city will come alive with concerts such as Summertime Jazz, Italian Jazz Night, It’s Jazz Time, Jazz a Perfect Day, and Best of Jazz. Whether you are more interested into a sophisticated or a more relaxed vibe, the event offers a bit of everything to everyone.

The EUROPAfest Gala will take place on the 15th of July, celebrating in an atmosphere filled with emotion and enthusiasm the best bands of the 2023 edition, during which the audience will have the opportunity to find out this year’s winners.

Luigi Gageos, the director of EUROPAfest, stated: “I am delighted that in just 2 days, we will begin the 30th anniversary edition. I have been asked how it feels, and I must admit that the sensation is overwhelming. I have imagined this moment many times, especially in the early days, but the reality is much more beautiful. The thought that we have managed to organize an annual international event in Romania without interruption, even during the pandemic when we temporarily moved it online, says a lot. And by this, I don’t mean the immense work behind it, but the appetite of the audience for quality events, the desire of artists from all over the world to come to Romania, and the fact that prestigious events can be organized in our country. It is true that we are seen as part of the premium events category, but we have encouraged attendance by keeping ticket prices accessible, and for many years we have offered free entry. We are starting strong, as befits a 30-year-old international festival. I invite you to say together, ‘Start EUROPAfest!'”

From July 7th to 15th, make room in your schedule for EUROPAfest, the only festival in Europe that brings together jazz, blues, pop, and classical music. Under the slogan “It’s all about live quality music!”, jmEvents, the festival`s organizer, has decided to dedicate 2023 predominantly to jazz, which signifies freedom, spontaneity, and energy. Bucharest will resonate with the music of musicians from over 20 countries through concerts, jam sessions, competitions, and workshops. For nearly two decades, EUROPAfest has been held under the High Patronage of Her Majesty Margareta, the Custodian of the Crown, and His Royal Highness Prince Radu, and since 2015, it has held the title of Europe’s Finest Festivals.

EUROPAfest 30 is a cultural project co-financed by the Ministry of Culture.
