Umbria Jazz 19
Perugia July 12-21
Back in 1973, the first year of Umbria Jazz, nobody could have imagined the importance it would acquire on the music scene in Italy and beyond. Today the name of Umbria Jazz is known and held in high regard all over the world; performing there is the ambition of many artists, and it has become a point of reference in the world of music and music festivals.
Since that first edition of the Festival a great deal has changed, but not its spirit and identity which, combined with the quality of its programmes, are behind the Festival’s success.
This year’s event follows the format first tried some years ago: there are many different kinds of music for everyone, but the Festival’s soul is indissolubly tied to jazz and to the history of that incredible music.
The proof of this can be seen in the Umbria Jazz 19 Arena’s complete programme:
