It wasn’t tough, but it wasn’t easy either to reach the 24th edition. However, we’re not giving up and the EUROPAfest 2017 is already in the height of preparations.
Our motivation and strength to go on and to “grow” from one year to another came from the passion for good music, from the desire to demonstrate that in Romania too there can be quality, professional events, from the enthusiasm of a public that became more numerous with every edition and from the participants’ words of appreciation. Moreover, we are proud that the event has lasted on the Romanian musical market, regardless of economic period or political system.
Since 2005, EUROPAfest takes place under the High Patronage of HRH the Princess Margarita and HRH Prince Radu. The traditional partners of the festival are The Ministry of Education, various cultural centers and embassies.
Apart from its professional prestige, the festival brings the Romanian public closer to excellent, quality music, reuniting in Bucharest the latest names from the European musical community and special guest stars from other continents.
The over 300 musicians from 42 countries who gather each year in Bucharest never lip-sync, but always play live, improvise genuine music on stage, before your very eyes. That makes the difference!
The event has imposed itself on the Romanian and international music market with a diversified agenda that seeks innovation year by year. Blues, pop, jazz or classical music concerts satisfy some of the most varied tastes. Thus, each day of the festival offers a rich agenda and the certainty of unique moments. During ten days, from May 14 to 23, the festival offers an original mélange of jazz, blues, pop and classical music.
