Description of the Jazz Festival

F or two months each year, the heart of Warsaw’s jazz scene beats in the market square of the Old Town. The jazz festival begins on the first Saturday in July and ends on the last Saturday in August. The history of this musical spectacle dates back to 1994.

Admission is, of course, free for everyone!

The Festival in numbers

The jazz festival in the Old Town is Poland’s largest open-air event in the jazz category. Each Saturday, up to 4,000 spectators attend. This results in an audience count of up to 50,000 per edition.

By now, so many international celebrities have participated in the festival that it’s impossible to list them all here. However, artists like the Christian Sands Trio, Adam Makowicz, Nicholas Payton, Shai Maestro, and Bill Evans deserve a mention.

It’s always a wonderful experience to attend the festival, even if you can only stop by for a short time. The atmosphere in the market square is simply delightful.

A little tip Try to reserve seats at one of the nearby restaurants. An evening meal with such background music makes for an unforgettable experience.

The street surfaces are all somewhat uneven. We also recommend arriving early at the stage to avoid having to squeeze through the crowded square later.
