Taking place from 7 May 2009 until 13 May 2009 in the eastern European country's capital city, the musical extravaganza will see over 300 musicians drawn from around the world to participate in a celebration of sound.

A series of concerts will feature a diverse array of musical styles including blues, jazz, pop and classical acts.

The associated Caffe Festival will see crowds assemble in a number of unconventional venues in an effort to promote the concept of creating music in an alternative space.

Highlights include workshops and jam sessions led by internationally-recognized music artists as well as the Bucharest International Jazz Competition, which will see 30 bands from around 25 countries strive to create a pure form of jazz.

Travelers looking to take some time out of the festival to explore attractions in Bucharest may wish to make their way to the Palace of the Parliament, which was constructed by communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, or explore the National Museum of Contemporary Art.
