O festivalu

Jazzik Festival

Jazzik festival nastao je 2010. godine kao rezultat rada okupljenih ljubitelja džeza na čelu sa Gaborom Bunfordom, renomiranim subotičkim saksofonistom, a kao projekat “UP&UP” društva za konsalting i menadžment, i organizaciju kulturno-umetničkih događaja. Održava se u aprilu, mesecu u kojem je najviše rođendana muzičara-legendi džeza. Ovaj festival neguje mejnstrim pravac u džezu obraćajući se široj publici sa željom da približi ovaj pravac većem auditorijumu. Pored oficijalnog programa na kojem nastupaju svetski džez muzičari, Jazzik posebno promoviše mlade talente džez muzike, omogućavajući im usavršavanje na brojnim radionicama i predavanjima koja se održavaju u toku festivala i koja su otvorena i besplatna za sve zainteresovane, i motivaciju koju dobijaju nastupom u promotivnom delu programa i džemujući zajedno sa svetskim džezerima na sešnima nakon oficijalnog programa.

Sešni  su  najposećeniji i najugodniji  deo festivala pored oficijalnog programa. To su momenti lepote, kako za ljubitelje džeza, tako i za muzičare koji uživaju u neposrednoj razmeni pozitivne energije i muzike… Jazzik je do sada ugostio muzičare iz Nemačke, Austrije, Hrvatske, Italije, Mađarske, Brazila, Amerike i naravno  Srbije. Od 2011. godine, Jazzik organizuje poseban program namenjen deci, pod nazivom  Junior Jazzik, pružajući u Srbiji jedinstvenu priliku najmlađima da uživaju u džez muzici prilagođenoj njima.

Od 2014. godine, Jazzik prerasta u samostalnu instituciju koja funkcioniše kroz Udruženje gradjana „Jazzik“. Sudeći po izjavama medija, ali i broju publike koja posećuje ovaj festival, Jazzik je trenutno jedan od najznačajnijih kulturno – edukativnih događaju u Subotici, a njegovu publiku čini spoj predstavnika svih generacija koji  vole ovu muziku.

U organizaciji Jazzik festival, ostvarena je saradnja i sa drugim kulturnim institucijama: Muziška škola Subotica, Junior Music Studio, Narodno pozorište Subotica, Art bioskop Aleksandar Lifka, Somborski Green Town Jazz Fest, Američki kutak Gradske biblioteke Subotica i dr…

Jazzik je promovisao i bio odskočna daska za mnoge mlade muzičare iz ovog regiona, posebno iz Subotice…
