About Smida Jazz Festival
Smida best uncovers itself when jazz takes its form. When this happens, Smida becomes Smida Jazz Festival and it succeeds to keep its peace and even to increase it. When you hear the word festival, you tend to think about noise, agitation, but when the word Festival is placed near Smida Jazz, it means serenity and good vibes.
This is what Smida offers to you. You, the one who goes to other festivals. Or the one who doesn’t use to go to festivals, but you come here as on vacation. You, who maybe you are a parent and you look for the best context to spend some quality time with your kids. You, who perhaps you have a pet, and you can’t attend most of the events because of this fact, but you are both welcomed at us. You, the one who loves nature and you know that it can be quite moody. You, the one who listens to music, not a genre/style in particular, because you always look for something new. You, the one who loves jazz and you can appreciate not only the classic jazz but also a different kind of jazz, the avant-garde jazz.
Welcome to SMIDA!
Smida is a mountain village of Beliș, located right in the heart of Apuseni Nature Park, one of Europe’s last great size remaining carts regions (76.000 ha). The Naturel Park is also home to more than 1.500 caves, the closest of which is the Big Cave in the Valley of Fire. The Apuseni Nature Park is also back to underground glaciers, Scarisoara, and Focul Viu being two of the most important ones (roughly 40 km and 24 km, respectively, away from Smida).
