„Riga Jazz Stage 2018” concerts offer a great opportunity to hear new and yet unknown, as well as already famous jazz performers from all over the world. This year the contest will be presented in two categories of Jazz Vocal and Jazz Bass and is open for the artists below the age of 30.
Contestants' performances will be judged by international jury of world-class musicians, music producers and festival directors and organizers. English jazz star Anthony Strong (one of the judges at 2015) notes:
"Riga Jazz Stage is an important jazz fixture in the calendar - up-and-coming jazz musicians should take note! I hope to come back to Riga soon!"
