The program of the Festival consists of three gala concerts that will take place in the Mayakovsky State Russian Drama Theatre and in the Aini Tajik State Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet. The Tajik National Conservatory will accommodate a Jam-session of the Festival participants, a series of workshops and a round table. <>

Besides Tajik musicians, the Festival will also bring together musicians from Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan, among which are both beginners and distinguished masters of jazz, and the guest of the festival Demetrius Spaneas from USA.

The Second Dushanbe Jazz Festival with aspirations of the First Jazz Festival held in Dushanbe last year, aims at promoting jazz music in Tajikistan in its ethno-jazz national form, through searching for original ideas, trends and styles of ethno-jazz compositions, as well as disclosing new talents who are willing to demonstrate their abilities in jazz music, which is yet to be developed in Tajikistan. The primary artistic goal of the festival to be attained by Tajik musicians lies in exploring national forms of jazz based on musical traditions of makom and falak. Other participants of the festival have also been offered to include two compositions based on Tajik makom and falak into their concert program.
