Help the dynamic team of Brienza to break down borders and prejudices among generations through artistic and musical shows. They would love to welcome people from all over the world like you. #JazzFestival #Friendly #Castle #Art
Volunteers will be welcomed in a big loving family by the organisers and their families. They will be involved at every step of the making of the festival: from setting up stage areas, carrying stuff and cleaning to selling food and helping the musicians. They will also have a chance to perform themselves.
Volunteers will be hosted in an house in the center of Brienza composed by two bedrooms (1for man and 1 for women); 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. They will be cooking for themselves every day, except for the festival days when they will have a voucher to eat at the food stand. Beds will be provided, but it is recommended to have a sleeping bag.
Brienza is a small village with a big heart. Surrounded by mountains and crossed by two rivers, it’s a real gem, a perfect place to relax and enjoy nature. The 12th century castle, where the festival takes place, with dozens of abandoned houses, offering a breathtaking view on the town and the mountains. The mayor’s house and its churches are interesting places to visit, as well.
Basilicata region is full of beautiful places that you’ll remember forever. Maratea, with its serene beaches; Matera (UNESCO site and European capital of Culture of 2019), chosen by Pasolini, Gibson and many others for their movies; Pollino natural park, and a lot of other places, only a couple of hours away from Brienza.

Crusco Jazz was born in 2015 thanks to a group of young creative people who wanted to bring together traditions, art, good music, local food and show the world the beauty of their town and the Basilicata region. The festival has been taking place for three years now and has brought thousands of visitors to Brienza. Musicians and artists arrive from all over Italy, they play in every corner of the town: from small square to the castle’s tower. Emerging artists will display their works on the walls of the old 12th century houses, delicious flavours of local foods will fill the streets.
The main aim of our project is to spread the beauty of music and art, local traditions and cuisine, to create a friendly and warm environment for visitors, volunteers and organisers. With Crusco Jazz we want to demolishing borders and prejudices among generations, cultures and nationalities through arts and music. By welcoming to Brienza people from all over the world we aim to broaden people’s horizons, introduce locals to differen
t, foreign cultures and together enjoy the process of bringing the festival together.
Over the past three years the support from Lunaria has been extraordinary, with every year Crusco Jazz has evolved and grown, welcomed talented artists and enthusiastic volunteers from all over the world. We are thrilled to be embarking on this adventure again this year.
