JazzFest Vienna 2018

“Get your daily dose of Jazz”

This motto is lived out: From 15th June to 10th July, 2018, the JazzFest Vienna will be a fixed point on the festival calendar. Stars like Thomas Quasthoff and Caro Emerald as well as legend Kris Kristofferson or soul singer Cee-Lo Green, and classics like Louie Austen, Corinne Bailey Rae, Count Basic, the Mojo Blues Band, 5/8erl in Ehr’n or Norbert Schneider are gathering. The names of the artists speak for themselves – not only jazz is played. You can also look forward to soul, funk, pop, electronic or ethnic sounds across genres, and all these top acts at the most beautiful venues in the city. Sitting still is impossible!

Brilliant start, great locations and music, music, music…

Of course, the classic jazz cellars and jazz venues of Vienna are also part of the programme – from “Jazzland”, “Porgy & Bess” to the “Reigen”. Top performers like Dena Derose, Mojo Blues Band or the Harri Stojka Trio should not be missed at these characteristic locations.

Last but not least: The Rathausplatz and the Summerstage present artists like Ina Regen, Roxy Star or Die Mayerin at top free concerts.

A summer start full of music – have fun at JazzFest Vienna!
