As is tradition at this festival, jazz will be fused with many other music genres, including experimental and avantguard electronica, film music and folk music of various peoples.

Concerts will be given by Jones Jones, A.G.A.T., The Elephant, Radian, Ill Considered, Jasna Jovićević, Rok Zalokar ZHLEHTET, Sofia Jernberg & Alexander Hawkins MUSHO, and Darius Jones Trio, said the festival's director Simon Kenda.

The concerts will be accompanied by "six events which complement and round off the concept of the main programme in an imaginative way", said Kenda, listing additional concerts, a music workshop, a sound walk and a jazz book presentation, all free of charge.

The venue of the festival is Stari Plac (Old Place) in Cerkno, a town in the west of the country.
