To a classic question “Exit or Guča?” I say Nišville, because this matches my interest and obviously cannot be lonely as thousands of people visit it every night. - Mr. Miša Blam,
jazz musician and publicist
This is one of the best jazz festivals I have ever played. The great audience has made me feel like a real rock star, while,after the show, I enjoyed myself walking through the town
with the wonderful people of different generations who reallyunderstand and like what we are doing. - Frank Lacy,trombone player and singer of Mingus Dynasty
The first time we played at Nišville in 2007, it was raining and we thought it would affect the concert. But, although it never stopped raining, thanks to the great feedback of the
audience and wonderful atmosphere, we had one of the best and longest concerts in our career, although this was supposed to be only a festival performance. It was very similar
in 2009, but with no rain and an even larger audience. – Jean Paul Maunick, the leader of Incognito
Fascinated by the wonderful ambience and great atmosphere at this quite big festival, this was a new and wonderful experience.When I get back to
Nišville. - Grace Kelly, saxophone player
Although I have played at over a thousand concerts, this is my first time in this part of
over the world, but your audience is very welcoming and this is the reason hardly any festival can be compared to Nišville. - Solomon Burke, the legend of soul (who sadly passed
away in 2010 only two months after playing at Nišville)
Phenomenal! The audience is fantastic, the city is beautiful and in a few days I haven’t seen any ugly women or girls. People, I will take you on court, I got used to quince rakija.
And the food! What will I do home without the barbecue from Niš?! - Andy Ninvalle, McStewlocks
