Kaunas Jazz festival, which will take place for the 25th time this year, will visit the Estonian capital Tallinn, in addition to the usual venues in Kaunas and Vilnius. Concerts are also planned in Birštonas and Vilkaviškis, both towns in southern Lithuania.

"Kaunas Jazz has expanded even further, as the festival will kick off outside of Lithuania – in Tallinn on April 21. It will open with last year's project Evolution by Ąžuolas Paulauskas, it will be presented in Tallinn at the Jazzkaar festival of our long-term partners," one of the organizers, Indrė Jučaitė, told a news conference on Tuesday.

On April 23, the event will return to Kaunas for traditional opening festivities in the Kaunas Town Hall and will last until Sunday, with a one-day trip to Vilnius for a concert of US band Naturally 7.

The Žalgiris Arena in Kaunas will feature a performance of one of the most famous jazz musicians Gregory Porter of the US.

Performers at Kaunas Jazz will include about 300 musicians from Lithuania, Switzerland, Estonia, Poland, Israel, Finland and the US.
