Samobor Jazz Festival

Samobor Jazz Festival

At the end of May and the beginning of June every year, the town of Samobor becomes a town of outstanding jazz organized by the oldest Town Orchestra in Croatia – The Samobor Town Orchestra. After successful 15 editions of the festival, it can be easily said that the initiator of the festival, Dubravko Mihalinec, struck gold when he decided to try out the beat of the local audience and check how they would react to jazz. To carry it out in the best possible way, we need a formula for success – a combination of small, but first-class jazz and blues bands during the week in the Havana Café Bar and then the concert of Samobor’s Big Band with guests at the weekend on the main square.

There is no point in naming the performers who took the stage over the last 15 years because they include all who mean something on the Croatian jazz scene. They were accompanied by the selected international guests, and if we add that the entrance is free, there is no excuse to check the Samobor Town’s Orchestra’s web pages and check what is cooking for the next edition of the festival.
