Koktebel int Jazz FestivalThanks to annual festival “Jazz-Koktebel” one named Koktebel the jazz capital o the Crimea. The organizers announced that this year the festival would take place from 21 to 23 of September. This time the main trend of “Jazz-Koktebel” will be “exotic jazz”.
The presentation of the most popular festivals was held in Simferopol, and “Jazz-Koktebel” was among them. At first the festival took place in Koktebel in the middle of August, and last year it was put off on September. It didn’t reflect on the amount of the wishing to visit this popular event.
The director of the Ukrainian representation of the festival Lilia Minarich said that this year the fest would be held from 21 to 23 of September. Annually the organizers announce the theme of the project. For example, last year it was “Jazz with the speed of light”. Thanks to the most modern technologies, the Koktebel jazz was not only broadcasted live in Moscow and Oxford but let the musicians from different countries play together.
- This time the festival has the conditional trend “exotic jazz”. That’s why the representatives of this trend will take part in the fest, only after the contest, - Lilia Minarich said. – The grounding stage will be the performances-contests between the musicians handed demands. Now the negotiations are being carried on.

2I attended a couple years ago. If you're into dope, booze, filth, no toilets and the like it's for you.
No mistake it for any other outdoor festival, it's not. I was at Woodstock as a late teen, and though that was a long time ago, I remember it being much cleaner.
The music at Koktebel is of a horrid quality. While a couple performers seemd pretty good, the sound quality made it pitiful.
And there's just no added security, cleanup, anything here for events like that. I'd reccomend avoiding at all costs.
