History

Athens Technopolis Jazz Festival’s story began back in 2001 when Technopolis City of Athens presented the first European Jazz Festival in Athens, in collaboration with the embassies and cultural institutions of the members-states of the EU based in Greece.

In 2011, the festival opened its doors to the remaining countries in Europe and, in 2013, became international while being renamed to “Athens Technopolis Jazz Festival”.

In 2015, Technopolis organized the 15th celebratory edition of the festival which was accompanied -for the first time- by a series of parallel events: photo exhibitions, educational programs, flea market.

In 2018, the festival comes of age and presents 7 days full of music dedicating its first day to the Greek jazz scene.
