Athens Technopolis Jazz Festival 2018
WHAT: Greece’s biggest Jazz Festival turns 18 this year with a week-long celebration of smooth sounds, international acts and infectious spirits.
Boasting attendance records of up to 30,000 over the past couple of years, the Athens Technopolis Jazz Festival returns again this summer for its 18th year of jazz promotion. In 2017, the event hosted 17 jazz groups, more than 150 individual musicians and three bands. The festival usually attracts groups from all over the world like Israel, Estonia and Azerbaijan, but the first day this year will be reserved exclusively for Greek groups. With the purpose of promoting the genre of jazz among young Greeks, the event is 100% free. There will also be a strong jazz contingent from the United States in 2018, cementing the event’s international status. #JazzBeThere!
The Festival will open this year with Athens Big Band and Momo Trio, a banging ensemble selected to represent Greece, followed by the Mario Laginha Trio from Portugal.
