Umbria Jazz Winter #28 ends today: over 4,500 paying visitors over the five days of the festival.
Thanks to everyone (workers, artists, audience), who made it possible for everything to take place in maximum safety.
It should have been the edition of the return to normality: unfortunately, however, this edition of the festival had to deal with cancellations, downsizing and constraints imposed by the pandemic, with the public unable to experience the magical atmosphere that usually characterizes the end of the year in Orvieto. However, the results were positive: more than 4,500 people paid for the events scheduled at the Teatro Mancinelli, the Museo Emilio Greco, the Sala Expo of Palazzo del Popolo and Palazzo dei Sette, with a programme that, in terms of qualitỳ, lived up to the event’s tradition, with exclusive events and top level artists.
The festival was talked about and commented on a lot on Radio Monte Carlo, the festival’s official radio station, and on social networks: almost 500 thousand impressions on Facebook, with over 2,500 reactions and almost 7,000 on Instagram, with a considerable increase in contacts in the week from 27 December to 2 January.
After last year’s forced stop, Orvieto has once again become Umbria’s winter showcase, with that mix of culture, entertainment and tourism that is an essential part of the region’s identity. Confirming the great appeal of the event, the data from the hotels in the area recorded an excellent turnout during the days of the festival. We must thank the institutions, sponsors and all those who contributed to the realisation of this important event.
We look forward to seeing you at Umbria Jazz 22, in Perugia from 8 to 17 July.
