The 19th Athens Technopolis Jazz Festival came to an end on Sunday, June 2, having offered to all of us who flocked to Technopolis a chance to listen to wonderful tunes and watch memorable jazz performances for an entire week. One year before its 20th anniversary, which is expected to be more spectacular than ever, we got to live first-hand an event that demonstrated the necessary knowledge, experience, and willingness to work towards greater progress and...creativity! Artists from all over the world walked onto the city’s favorite stage, joined forces for a fantastic lineup, and took us for seven consecutive nights on a journey through the contemporary jazz trends around the globe.
The festival was once again hosted by Gautier Velissaris who presented and welcomed on stage 21 musical ensembles that left more than 45,000 visitors in awe of their live performances!
Following on from last year’s event, ATJF’s first day was dedicated to Greece’s contemporary jazz scene, in an effort to support it in a practical manner; the audience had the chance to enjoy the up-and-coming Yako Trio -the Festival’s pick-, the uniquely cinematic and innovative Grey Paris, and the Petros Klampanis Trio, which performed original compositions of the phenomenal double bassist Petros Klampanis.
