The Džjezz Festival was launched in 2009 in Celje by the then newly opened House of Culture Celje. Built on the legacy of the regular jazz concerts that the city of Celje had been hosting until then (and, now under the name Džjezz do it in Art kino Metropol Celje, still is), the festival is meant to broaden the scope of musical concerts in Celje and to facilitate further creative developments in the region. While the core concerts of the festival currently take place in the so-called Lapidarium at the bank of the Savinja River, that space is only temporary, as the location of the festival and its additional programme changes regularly. Until now, the festival has been presented throughout the city and hosted by a number of different venues.

The festival has hosted the following musicians, to name a few: Simone Zanchini (IT), Danny Grissette Trio (US), Francesco Cafiso Duo (IT), Enrica Bacchia & Massimo Zemolin (IT), Will Vinson group (US) and a number of highly profiled Slovene musicians and bands such as Big Band Krško, Robert Jukič Group, Jani Moder, Jadranka Juras & Milan Stanisavljević, Kaja Draksler Quintet, and Jure Pukl NYC Quintet.
