The Jazz Festival in the Old Town

A blind date with the city

What has been self-evident for 20 years is hard to imagine in times like these: 25,000 festival visitors, full hotels and restaurants, improvised music everywhere, concerts without distancing or people dancing and celebrating in large halls. 
Nevertheless, we wouldn't be a jazz festival if we didn't also deal with this situation in a very playful way. And so we have developed an adapted concept that gives us the greatest possible freedom and tries out new performative formats: open, spontaneous and flexible. At this festival we invite you to look behind the scenes of the old town, discover new music and let yourself drift.

The essence of improvisation is confidence

We are looking forward to a weekend full of music, art, improvisation, food and lots of good times with good people - indoor and outdoor.

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.
