Jazz & The City Bag

This year our new Jazz & The City Bag celebrates its premiere. With the bag, you get special offers or attractive additional services at selected hotspots. All details about the hotspots can be found here.

With the bag we want to make the festival visible throughout the city. The fascination of Jazz & The City will increase even further throughout Salzburg's old town, and will make us all happy about the great concerts.

The future of Jazz & The City

Our ambition is clear - we want to develop Jazz & The City and expand the program from year to year. More concerts, more programs and special offers for children and more public spaces. For this we need your help!

With the purchase of the Jazz & The City Bag you support us to realize our plans, so that the festival will continue to be varied and original in the future. The basic price of the bag is € 5, -. Of course we are always grateful for additional financial support!

You will receive the bag after the concerts, at some participating companies and at the Infopoint at Bürgerspitalplatz 1.

Jazz Kindergarten

For all Jazz & The City Kids there is a little present waiting in the boutique. What are the Jazz & The City Kids? All children who attend the Jazz Kindergarten during the festival days. This year there will be an official Jazz Kindergarten for the first time. What does this mean? Musical fun for the little festival visitors and lots of lasting memories! The children get to know instruments and are allowed to "improvise", they can dance, paint and play. They will be looked after by a music teacher and will also meet musicians from the festival. And the parents? They can relax and stroll through the Altstadt.

Jazz & The City Playlist

The musical landscape of Jazz & the City is diverse, lively and surprising. It ranges from the electronically inspired jazz pop of Christoph Pepe Auer, the African coloured grooves of the artist Somi from the USA to the sound combinations of the Jazzorchester Vorarlberg, far beyond expectable listening habits.

A first impression can be found here in this playlist.
