Festival of Big Bands

6 & 7 August 2021


MJ 2021

MareziJazz 2021 - already the 16th glass of good music

Last year's edition was unfortunately marked by the pandemic and therefore the festival was wandering around looking for the beautiful outlooks around the Slovenian Istria. This year, MareziJazz is returning to its basics - back to the "native" village of Marezige, back to two consecutive festival days, back to the big bands, back to a larger number of quality bands, both Slovenian and from abroad.

This year MareziJazz will once again take place at the outlook next to the monument in Marezige. In two days - August 6 and 7 - the festival will host four Slovenian big bands and two guests from our neighbours, Italy. We are glad that MJ will regain its international character after a one-year pandemic break.

We are happy to return to the basics, when they are so good - we continue to strive for the promotion of big band and jazz culture in our region, we continue to attract top bands to our local stages, we continue to unite musicians and encourage their creativity. We also educate them at the Grab the Sound summer school, which this year is organized in collaboration with JazzObala music school.


Program of this year's MareziJazz festival:

Friday, August 6, 2021, from 7 p.m.

See you next to a glass of good music!
