Festival Story:

Since 1997 Summer Music Session in cooperation with Modern Music Center has taken an active part in organizing summer camps, concerts and master classes. At that time there were few opportunities to learn and acquire high-quality jazz techniques. Saulkrasti Jazz Festival was started as a Baltic Drummer Summit only for drummers until it outgrew itself. Currently it offers students a variety of musical instruments and music programs. As in the previous years, the festival includes master classes for young musicians, daily jazz concerts, jam sessions and large concerts on the open-air stages.
