22nd Athens Jazz
22 – 29.05.2023
Are you ready to jazz? From May 22 to 29, the Technopolis City of Athens will be grooving again this year to the rhythms of Athens Jazz, the most prominent jazz music festival in Greece! The festival features 21 artists and ensembles on the Technopolis stage, providing a multifaceted, international lineup of performances that celebrate jazz music. And, of course, the festive climate is not limited to the stage: A rich series of side events accompany this year's Athens Jazz, inside and outside Technopolis, offering visitors a complete festival experience.
Just like in previous years, the abundant and always creative Meet Market and the photo exhibition of the METApolis team will be there. This year, the Vinyl Market will also be joining in, filling the air with the sweet aroma of vinyl for a whole weekend. In Technopolis, the new stand-meeting point of the “Jazz Solidarity Network”, ideal for jazzy talks, will accommodate visitors throughout the festival. Meanwhile, a few hours before the live performances, young and grownups -jazz lovers or not!- will have the opportunity to visit the Industrial Gas Museum for free as part of the celebrations for its 10th anniversary.
Last but not least, the Club Program, that this year brings a special live show party with up-beat DJ set from the radio station Kosmos 96.3 to the neighboring Gazarte, as well as a unique improvisation workshop by pianist, composer and improviser Guy Mintus at the Philippos Nakas Conservatory. #JazzBeThere!
