Dear friends,

We are delighted that the PONTA LOPUD platform has successfully taken root, bringing us a jazz festival alongside our three editions of the film festival.

Lopud has become a unique location where renowned artists and authors from around the world meet with young talents representing the bright artistic future.

With the invaluable support of esteemed professionals from diverse cultural domains, we extend our heartfelt appreciation to the residents of Lopud, both natives and individuals from all around the globe who have embraced Lopud as their cherished summer retreat and are passionate enthusiasts of our beautiful island. Their recognition of the tireless efforts and dedication of our festival team to create something exceptional has been truly gratifying.

Ponta Lopud Platform promotes and celebrates film, music, contemporary art, and gastronomy, connecting and networking people of diverse professions, nationalities, and lifestyles, all sharing the same sensibility for beauty and love for Lopud. It is precisely due to this overall positive energy and encouragement that our enthusiasm grows, reassuring us that everything we are undertaking makes sense.

The first edition of the Ponta Lopud jazz festival will be graced by one of the greatest jazz saxophonists, Joe Lovano, who will share his rich experience and knowledge as a master in residence with our younger colleagues. We will also welcome brilliant musicians in the roles of mentors and lecturers, such as Antonio Sanchez, David Sanchez, Lada Obradović, David Tixier, and artistic director Thana Alexa, who also initiated the Ponta Lopud Jazz festival.

Our aspiration is for Lopud to flourish as a creative hub, a place of encounters and the birth of new and advanced ideas. We aim to push creative boundaries, and together, we can create an active community and contribute to the quality and long-lasting impact of artistic events on the island. It is, therefore, our great honour and pleasure to invite you to join the “Ponta Lopud Jazz Club.”

We look forward to welcoming you and sharing the joy with you at the 1st Ponta Lopud jazz festival.
