Vilnius Jazz & Klaipeda jazz

The Vilnius Jazz Festival is the oldest annual jazz festival held in Vilnius, Lithuania. It provides a broad perspective on contemporary trends in jazz from all over the world. Since its founding in 1987, Vilnius Jazz has earned a reputation of a radical avant-garde festival oriented towards originality and limit-stretching creativity. The festival crosses and expands the stylistic boundaries of jazz and free improvised music by presenting joint projects with musicians from academic, ethnic music, rock and industrial music backgrounds.

 

The Klaipėda Jazz Festival has broadened the number of people who care about art, beauty, and, of course jazz by featuring international and national artists. For the city of Klaipeda and Lithuania the festival has become an important part of the cultural life since 1993. For all these years the performances have remained free of charge and they will continue a such in the future. Previous artists have included performances by masters such as Toots Thielemans, Billy Cobham, Maynard Ferguson, Jean Jacques Milteau, Mike Mainieri, Jim Beard, Victor Bailey, Chico & The Gypsies (former "Gypsy Kings"), "Dutch Swing College Band", and many more. Workshops and open lessons for students of music schools and Klaipeda University Faculty of Arts are free of charge.
