11-20 July 2008. One of the oldest and most important jazz festivals in Europe. Names to look out for this year are Bill Frisell Trio, Sonny Rollins, Cassandra Wilson, Herbie Hancock, Charlie Haden Quartet. However, what was once a festival for lovers of jazz has become a fashionable event for those who can afford the wildly expensive tickets for the main events. The programme too is increasingly filled with concerts that have nothing to do with jazz, but are likely to draw crowds: this year it stars Caetano Veloso, Alicia Keys, Mario Biondi and R.E.M. Evening concerts take place at the Arena Santa Giuliana, afternoons and nights at Perugia
