At least 11,000 people have already visited the shows of Alfa Jazz Fest that is taking place in Ukraine’s western city of Lviv on June 23-27, and organizers expect at least 7,000 more to come before the festival ends.
That only accounts for the guests of the festival’s main stage that is dedicated to Eddie Rosner, which was sold out for every performance. Many more guests flocked to the free areas in the surrounding park, and can’t be accounted for. They listened to the performances and watched the broadcast while sitting on the grass or dancing to the music.
Apart from that, two more stages were installed on the central Rynok Square and Potocki Palace Square for everyone to listen to jazz for free.
