Bohemia Jazz Fest has quickly become one of the largest summer music festivals in Europe. Downbeat magazine even lists it as one of the most important cultural events in the world.
The festival was started in 2005 by acclaimed jazz guitarist Rudy Linka, who wanted to present and promote world-class jazz in the Czech Republic. By 2010 it was drawing more than 70,000 jazz fans to historic town squares throughout the country, making a significant economic impact.
All the concerts are open-air, featuring headline performers playing in spectacular medieval settings. And they’re all free.
Thanks to our sponsors, patrons and supporters, Bohemia Jazz Fest has become more than just another music festival. It’s a summer ritual, a time when jazz fans throughout Central Europe gather in the Czech Republic to hear some of the world’s greatest performers – for free.
