EUROPAfest 2017

It’s all about live quality music!

11 – 20 mai, Bucuresti & Sibiu

Caracterizat prin autenticitate, diversitate si tinuta, EUROPAfest face parte din elita festivalurilor europene, contribuind cu fiecare editie la promovarea unei imagini pozitive a Romaniei in intreaga lume. Singurul festival din Europa care reuneste 4 genuri muzicale –  jazz | blues | pop | clasic continua si in 2017 cu concerte de exceptie. Sub sloganul It’s all about live quality music!, EUROPAfest prezinta in perioada 11–20 mai, peste 300 de artisti din 42 de tari – Europa, dar si invitati speciali din SUA, Australia, Venezuela, Brazilia sau Japonia.

EUROPAfest este primul eveniment caruia Casa Regala din Romania i-a acordat Inaltul Patronaj. In 2017, valoarea festivalului a fost reconfirmata de Comisia Europeana si Parlamanetul European prin acordarea titulaturii EFFE, Europe’s Finest Festivals.


Ca in fiecare an festivalul aduce o varietate de artisti din toata lumea. Cei mai multi se afla pentru prima oara in Romania, aducand acel aer de prospetime si noutate, apreciat de spectatori si specialisti deopotriva. Prin concertele oferite in Bucuresti si Sibiu, atat pe scene traditionale, cat si in spatii neconventionale, muzicienii de la EUROPAfest reusesc sa creeze emotie si experiente memorabile fiecarui ascultator.

Cele 10 zile de festival aduc o agenda plina – concerte, concursuri internationale, recitaluri, jam sessions, sesiuni de autografe, workshopuri, pentru ca totul sa culmineze cu Concertul de Gala din 20 mai. Evenimentele EUROPAfest se desfasoara in locatii diferite pentru a da posibilitatea manifestarilor paralele: Teatrul Odeon, CinemaPRO, Institutul Italian, Sala Thalia, Sala Rossini, Sala Berlioz, Sala Enescu, Ibis Nord Caffe  si Athenee Palace Hilton.

Directorul festivalului, Luigi Gageos declara “In perioada 11 – 20 mai facem Bucurestiul mai frumos. Asteptam iubitorii de jazz, blues, pop si muzica clasica sa se bucure de serile de concerte. An de an in luna mai, EUROPAfest da tonul marilor festivaluri din intreaga lume! Anul acesta sarbatorim 24 de ani de EUROPAfest. 24 de ani in care am oferit publicului larg un festival care se remarca prin muzica live, profesionalism si eleganta. Am creat EUROPAfest cu pasiune si credinta ca putem reusi. Asa cum v-am obisnuit an de an, in 2017 vor fi evolutii inedite si mereu suprinzatoare pentru publicul entuziast cu peste 300 de artisti remarcabili, din 42 de tari, 4 continente, atent selectionati de specialisti.It’s all about live, quality music!”
