The 15th International Jazz in the Old Town Festival will start July 4 on Warsaw's Old Town Square.

Every year several thousand people take part in this unique open-air jazz event. This time, the first concert will feature Hungarian jazz star Djabe, the winner of a Grammy Music award, with a jazz/world/fusion project. Djabe has collaborated with many renowned jazz musicians, for example Ben Castle, Steve Hackett and John Nugent.

In July, the festival will also feature the legendary Polish band String Connection, with a lineup of Krzesimir Dębski, Andrzej Olejniczak, Krzysztof ¦cierański, Janusz Skowron and Krzysztof Przybyłowicz. Also, masters of guitar and saxophone Apostolis Anthimos and Tomasz Szukalski will for the first time perform a joint project. British trumpet star Bryan Corbett from the legendary Us3 group will play with Funk de Nite, one of the best Polish funk-jazz bands, to promote their joint album Funky Roads.

In August, the legendary Polish Włodzimierz Nahorny Trio will play a special concert to mark the 65th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising. Also, renowned American jazz pianist and composer Katy Roberts will play her first concert in Poland. A performance by Brazilian singer Silvana Malta will mark a shift from jazz standards to bossa nova. There will also be a concert by Bobo Stenson, a world-renowned Swedish pianist, the winner of an European Jazz Prize and a major star of the ECM label. The festival will end with a concert by the young Norwegian vocalist Malene Mortensen.
