The international jazz festival JazzFestBrno was established in 2002. Since then, it has grown to become the most significant jazz showcase in the Czech Republic, annually attracting over 10,000 spectators. The festival charts the current state of the jazz genre and presents not only its mainstream but also modern trends. Its diverse and carefully curated program, in addition to dominant jazz, spans across genres and offers a wide range of styles from avant-garde to alt-pop.
