summer jazz festival krakow poland

Summer Jazz Festival in Krakow, Poland

The Summer Jazz Festival Kraków (until 2017 the Summer Jazz Festival in Piwnica pod Baranami) was organized for the first time in 1996 during the celebration of the 40th anniversary of Piwnica pod Baranami.

The creator and director of the Festival – Witold Wnuk, inspired by the legendary Piotr Skrzynecki, presented in July a series of daily concerts in Piwnica. From year to year, the Festival expanded its formula by presenting, in addition to daily concerts in Piwnica pod Baranami, concerts at the Philharmonic, the Krakow Opera, Radio Krakow, Manggha Center, ICE Krakow, Kiev Center and all Krakow jazz clubs.

Since 2000, great outdoor concerts and events have been organized – such as New Orleans Sunday and Jazz Night. Currently, the festival is the largest Polish jazz festival and one of the largest in Europe.

The festival currently consists of about 100 concerts, during which over 200 Polish and foreign artists perform for about 50,000 guests.
