The Summer Jazz Academy from the Croatian city of Grožnjan is regularly invited to the Jazz Kamp Kranj. This is due to the fact that the late Croatian musician Boško Petrović, the founder of the festival and summer jazz school in Grožnjan, had a very long and productive collaboration with Primož Grašić. Their cooperation led to the Jazz Kamp Kranj traditionally having its day in Grožnjan and the Grožnjan "academy" in Kranj.
