About Festival

“After seventeen years, Trnavský Jazzyk open-air festival has a stable place among the events that take place during the cultural summer in the oldest royal city in Slovakia, and thanks to its quality dramaturgy, it has become one of the most important jazz festivals in Slovakia.Just as each language has its dialects, jazz has innumerable different forms. The festival offers visitors a wide range of genres, from classical mainstream through fusion, funk, soul, world music to contemporary jazz.

It is the genre diversity of Jazzyk festival that brings extraordinary musical energy to the city and reflects Trnava’s long-term initiative to strengthen the diversity of events, which today, very naturally, resulted in Trnava’s candidacy for the European Capital of Culture 2026.

The festival will take place with the support of the City of Trnava and with the financial support of the Courtyard – the contemporary culture of the Trnava self-governing region. The festival was supported from public funds by the Art Support Fund. The aim is to find a common effort to bring visitors and to build an attractive program. The festival is also free of charge thanks to this support. We believe that Trnava is and will continue to be a city that will set an example for Slovakia in its approach to culture and joining forces.”
