Jazzfestival Salzburg

Jazz&The City Salzburg 2022

Jazz&TheCity opens up a new dimension of different musical styles to the audience – with free admission. The programme includes international jazz, improvised music and contemporary performance art.


Jazz&TheCity Salzburg 2022 will transform Salzburg’s old town into an interactive “playground” from 13 to 16 October 2022 and will delight friends of contemporary art, jazz music and performance art. For four days, Salzburg will become an international jazz metropolis.

Numerous musicians and artists from related genres such as dance and media art perform in large and small venues and transform Salzburg into an interactive stage. Performances take place at around 20 locations in Salzburg, mostly in the old town, for example on Residenzplatz, in the Traklhaus or in the arthotel Blaue Gans. But also the Marionette Theatre, the Künstlerhaus or simply out of the stages and onto the squares, roofs and into the hidden corners! During the city walks “Hidden Tracks”, the city space is used for street dance workshops and – weather permitting – the pop-up stage is used to spontaneously perform in the public space.

The lineup includes. Katrin Bethge, Sabine Scholl and Christoph Szalay, Songs of Wounding – Mariana Sadovska, Max Andrzejewski and Ensemble, Daniel Erdmann & Aki Takase, Das Kapital, Edward Perraud Trio, Pablo Held Trio & Nelson Veras, Rosie Frater-Taylor Trio, Myele Manzanza Trio, Insomnia Brass Band, Ensemble Kuhle Wampe, The Killing Popes, Philm, Ian Shaw, Nikitch & Kuna Maze, Mammal Hands, Matti Klein Soul Trio and many others.

Jazz&TheCity creates spaces where people can openly meet and exchange ideas. In this way, art and music act as a link in society across borders.

The gemstone of the rainbow

Salvador Dalí sends his regards. Fascinating worlds of colour and form become visible in cut tourmaline minerals. One imagines oneself in the area of Khao Phing Kan in Thailand (from above) and is actually in the exhibition "Crystal Magic - Fascinating Worlds in Dark Tourmalines" at the Haus der Natur in Salzburg. [Read more]

Filth and trash

Filth and trash are terms for so-called gutter literature, which was widespread from the beginning of the 20th century and in which crimes and vices were published. These booklets were usually traded under the counter. The Museum der Moderne Salzburg is showing examples by Oskar Kokoschka and Käthe Kollwitz, among others, until 4 September. [Read more]
