During this year’s Sopot Jazz Festival we want to improve accessibility of the event. Wherever possible and within our control, we remain open to you and your needs. While realising we still have a long way to go to ensure full accessibility, we are convinced that every step towards this goal does matter. We believe our festival will be free from any barriers soon. In this process, your opinions and comments are invaluable so please, voice them during or after the festival.
The person to contact on accessibility issues – before, during and after the festival – is Zuzanna Malek:
