About Festival

Saulkrasti Jazz Festival started in 1997.

Over the years it has established itself as a festival that meets high quality criterias and is a wonderful business card for the city of Saulkrasti.

During the festival masterclasses are organized for young musicians and those who are interested to enrich their knowledge of Jazz music.

The participants of the masterclasses have had the opportunity to meet such wellknown performers in the world of jazz music as Billy Cobham (USA), Lenny White (USA), David Backer (USA), Dave Weckl (USA), Dom Famularo (USA), Billy Hart (USA), Jojo Mayer (Switzerland, USA) and others.

All the concerts of the festival take place outdoors, so they are especially friendly for families with children. The festival headquarters, recreation complex “Minhauzena Unda”, is located a 5 min walk from the sea, which gives the audience an opportunity to combine a visit to a cultural event with being in nature, giving the festival a special atmosphere and charm.
