When the stars of Salzburg's jazz scene come out together, then it is soon time for "Jazz & The City". The musicians play on 30 stages across the entire Old Town, presenting the astonishing musical diversity that Salzburg has to offer. For 5-days, the Jazz, World & Electronic Music Festival transforms the Old Town of Salzburg into an exceptional musical landscape. Visitors bustle through town enjoying concerts free of charge. Jazz & The City is home to both local sounds, Baroque organ sounds as well as improvised music, DJ sets and musical city tours. A fantastic diversity of tradition and international atmosphere!
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.
