20 years COOLJAZZ
Live Experiences presented the first edition of COOLJAZZ in 2004, an different summer festival. As the years went by, there were iconic concerts, artists born at the festival, and the public increasingly surrendered to artistic criteria, as well as the comfort of the space. COOLJAZZ has unquestionably become one of the most important cultural events in the country, assuming its differentiation from year to year and focusing on what distinguishes it: a unique cultural lineup, the unique beauty of the green spaces, the enjoyment of the architectural landscape, the comfort of the place marked at a summer festival and the total focus on sustainability from the first hour of its birth. Live Experiences is proud of 20 years of COOLJAZZ, with many stories made and many to be made.
Live Experiences, which celebrates 25 years of founding, has been the festival’s producer for 20 years and continues to provide unique experiences and emotions to spectators and partners, investing in vibrant and sustainable projects.
