The festival brings together national and international jazz artists, spanning different generations and genres, to its stage where jazz and improvised music intertwine. In addition to its captivating performances, the Bozcaada Jazz Festival features numerous activities and discussions centered around advocacy; topics vary from gender equality, ecological transformation, to accessibility. These outputs are part of the festival’s exciting KEŞİF program.

Each year, the program revolves around a different theme, and this year’s theme is ‘Play’. Over the course of three days, participants will have the opportunity to enjoy performances by renowned musicians as well as explore new talents in the current music world. Through activities such as workshops, panels, discussions, walks, tastings, and trips, all designed around the theme of play, participants will unleash their creative potential and immerse themselves in a vibrant and engaging experience.
