City of Jazz is an annual open-air festival, held in the oldest and the most beautiful green spot in Moscow, the Moscow State University’s Botanical Garden. From late May till the end of August, City of Jazz is a concert series with artists playing in a variety of music styles: contemporary, world music, ethno jazz, mainstream jazz, swing, funk/soul, improv, big band jazz and classical music.
Two editions of the festival, in 2016 and 2017, were a big success among Muscovites. People enjoyed lying on the grass and listening to jazz. We presented best Russian acts, such as legendary guitarist Alexey Kuznetsov, phenomenal singer Alena Toymintseva, Peter Vostokov’s Big Jazz Orchestra, singer Alina Rostotskaya and her Jazzmobile group. During two years the audience of the festival exceeded 15,000 people.
In 2018 we also plan to invite international acts to perform at City of Jazz Festival.
