Over the years, the festival program has included performances by iconic jazz drummer Jimmy Cobb (USA), Grammy Award winner for Best Latin Jazz Album Gonzalo Rubalcaba (Cuba), Nu Jazz stars Club Des Belugas (Germany), saxophonist with a unique playing technique Robert Anchipolovsky (Israel).

Koktebel Jazz Party is not just world-class jazz, it is true freedom that creates a united vibration of music, the sea, body and soul.

The festival is being organized by Red Square Group.
