International Jazz in the Park Competition

The International Jazz in the Park Competition is an event addressed to young national and international jazz bands, and will take place on May 3-5 2019, in Cluj-Napoca. 14 young bands from across Europe and beyond will have the opportunity to perform on stage in front of 5000 people.

 

We believe that young talents deserve to be supported and promoted, and we’re trying to create a complex, professional context in which they could actually evolve towards a serious music career. There will be representatives of the European Jazz Network, festival managers, and about 5000 people ready to shake those jazzy hands. It’s going to be amazing!
