Jazz & The City

16 – 20 October 2019

“Jazz & The City” means Salzburg’s churches and wine bars alike opening their doors to audiences, while international performers make music together in a relaxed setting with free admission.

A whole city transformed into a stage

Actually, the stages during “Jazz & The City” are every bit as diverse as the artists themselves: At 50 different locations, 100 concerts promise an incomparable atmosphere and compelling musical experimentation. Aside from famous venues such as the Mozarteum, the Kavernen and the Stieglkeller, Salzburg’s baroque churches also get involved in the festival. Other locations include bars, cafés, craft businesses, restaurants and hotels.

Jazz music in and at every corner of the city

The program includes World Music, jazz and electronic music, international greats as well as newcomers with a bright future. Musicians and music lovers flock the streets and back lanes of Salzburg, enjoying the blend of music, great food and drink, and casual encounters. And all of that plus free admission!

20 years of “Jazz & The City” in the Salzburg historic district

“Jazz & The City” (October 17-20, 2019) has every reason to party this year: In order to give the festival’s 20th anniversary the celebration it deserves, artistic director Tina Heine will be making more forays than ever into public spaces. She has even called in reinforcements to assist, in the form of Viennese urbanist Oliver Hangl. In collaboration with Salzburg per-formers representing a wide range of genres, they are primed to give the historic district eve-rything they’ve got - which includes whisper tunnels, mobile concerts and musical prome-nades. And this year, yet again, this popular festival will invite as many as 30,000 visitors to join them on an expedition through Salzburg’s cafés and bars, Baroque churches and manu-factories for a series of free concerts. International performers and local musicians will en-gage in a musical dialogue and even hook up for so-called “Blind Dates”, that will definitely prove once and for all that music knows no borders or language barriers.
