ELBJAZZ 2019 Wrap-up



ELBJAZZ 2019 had 30.000 people visiting in total, enjoying more than 50 concerts on 8 different stages with perfect sunny festival weather.

The festival opened with a reception at the Elbphilharmonie and also included special events like the “Hamburg Jazz Award” (that was presented to bass player Lisa Wulff), as well as workshops (“jazz instruments for kids”, “a vocal journey” singing workshop with Andreas Schaerer, “saxophone for beginners”) and aftershow parties.

Jamie Cullum headlined the festival (what an entertainer!), artist in residence Julia Hülsmann presented three completely different concerts throughout the festival, bands like Mildlife, Kaiit, Butcher Brown, Benny Sings and J.P. Bimeni played their very first Germany shows and legend Benny Golson left everyone deeply impressed with his concert at the Elbphilharmonie.
