Pescara Jazz Festival 2019

1 International Jazz Festival 

Event born in 1969, the Pescara Jazz Festival 2019 was the first Italian summer festival dedicated to jazz, becoming, at the time, the leader of a series of initiatives throughout the national territory and is one of the most important jazz in Europe.

An opportunity for a meeting with some of the most famous American and European musicians we saw in the Jazz Festival organized in Pescara. It will be a very happy meeting for those who already know Afro-American music; it will perhaps be a surprising encounter for those of this music
