Jazz Cerkno festival

The main music event organised by Zavod Gabrijel fest has been taking place annually in mid-May since 1996 (between Thursday and Saturday). The festival venue is the square 'star plac' in the centre of Cerkno, covered with a large tent-roof for this special occasion. Three evenings of programme present various musicians and artists from all over the world, established and unknown ones, all of them united in finding new ways in jazz music and thus widening their horizons. The festival as such is important not only for the musical challenges and pleasures it grants, but also for representing the current trends in jazz music in general. Jazz, heard in Cerkno is never unambiguous, because the programme emphasises the unconventional and creative music, the collision of cultures and music practices, confrontation of various approaches where jazz often comes across other music forms and assumes different elements from them.
