Alfa Jazz Fest 2016

Alfa Jazz Fest is a festival on an international scale that will take place in Lviv. The festival will not only bring the world’s best jazz artists together; it will plunge the city into the spirit of European-level music performance during an incredible summer weekend. A huge jazz-wave will sweep over the old town, covering its highest roofs with excitement and euphoria. New traditions will arise: Lviv will overflow with groovy jazz that will become a trademark of the city. From now on Europe will open its summer fests under Lviv blue sky with Alfa Jazz.
