EUROPAfest

12-19 May 2018

EUROPAfest is an international festival which combines four musical genres: jazz, blues, pop and classical music. It made its debut in 1993 under the name of Jeunesses Musicales International Festival and takes place annually in the month of May in Bucharest. For two weeks, the event transforms the city into the world capital of quality music.

The only European festival to reunite four musical genres under the same name, EUROPAfest brings hundreds of international artists on stage. The event has a rich and diverse program, with activities organized both for the public and the musicians. On the first day of the festival there is the opening gala and the celebration of Europe Day, an occasion for renowned artists to give concerts and speeches. The show continues with musical sessions which take place both in traditional and unconventional locations, with workshops where young people learn new techniques and two competitions which promote the new generation of musicians.

The "Dinu Lipatti" Jeunesses International Music Competition includes the following categories: violin, piano, flute, clarinet and composition. The participants are divided into three age categories, from 18 to 30 and they are evaluated by a jury of good repute. The most virtuous contestants are included in international programs which facilitate their career ascension.

The Bucharest International Jazz Competition was born in 2007 and is considered to be the second jazz competition in Europe and the third in the world. It is dedicated to instrumentalists and vocalists under 35 and it highlights the creativity and the originality of young talents. The prizes for the two competitions sum up to 10,000 Euros.

EUROPAfest is much more than a music festival, it is a memorable celebration of elegance, of creative spirit and innovation. Days full of emotion and energy await you along with an unforgettable atmosphere. Whether you are a lover of the four musical genres promoted by EUROPAfest or you simply want to discover their charm, the atmosphere of the event will win you over and will determine you to come back every year.
