Ten days of great music at the Umbria Jazz Festival, the most important Italian jazz festival returning to Perugia from July 11th through 20th. Also this year, the theaters and squares of the Umbrian city open to the most popular names on the international scene, such as Herbie Hancock, Natalie Cole, Danilo Rea, Paolo Fresu, Wayne Shorter and The Roots, to name just some of the protagonists of this edition.

This varied program satisfies lovers of jazz, funk and even rap and hip-hop, thanks to the event entitled "Techno-logical Dance Music Festival," staged on July 12th. In addition, during the 2014 World Cup, the Umbria Jazz Festival offers the public the chance to witness the finals and semi-finals at the Arena Santa Giuliana, thus combining two major passions, one for music and one for sport. Also of note is a series of free events and performances in Piazza IV Novembre and the Carducci gardens together with the traditional Street Parade, which brings music to the streets of Perugia, reviving the history of jazz.

The city comes alive with sounds and atmosphere that captivate the public and convert the lovely, medieval center, surrounded by the unique Etruscan walls, into an exceptional stage.
