Welcome to JazzAscona!
10 days and nights of party, thousands of expected visitors, 200 concerts on six stages on the lakeside and throughout the historical center. Ascona is not only one of the world's greatest festivals dedicated to classic jazz and the New Orleans beat but is also a high-quality and unique festival for fans and insiders from all over Europe. The program, which this year is widely dedicated to women in jazz, is original and includes special events, famous names, rising stars, and music that ranges from New Orleans to swing, blues to gospel, and R&B to funk. All this – and much more – in a beautiful and intimate setting, in close contact with the artists. One has to experience the magic of an evening at JazzAscona at least once in a lifetime, to then return each year. Have a great festival everyone, we'll be waiting for you!
