The organizers told MTI that 65 wineries from 22 wine regions and 40 bands will perform on the banks of Lake Békás in the Great Forest between August 4 and 7, 2022.
The jazz festival was first held in Debrecen in 1972, and in just a few years it became an Eastern European music meeting place.
The organizers are keen to promote quality Hungarian wine culture, not only by organizing festivals but also by selecting the city’s wines every year, and cooperation between Debrecen and Érmellék, the former vineyard of the city, is intensifying. Three wines from the latter, including the almost forgotten but now rediscovered Bakator, will be on offer.
The Debrecen Wine and Jazz Days will be special because the three music stages will feature the best of Hungarian jazz musicians and bands. Young, experimental jazz musicians and experienced, well-known musicians will play in almost 40 bands in the Great Forest.
The festival will also feature a children’s corner for the youngest children.
