12th Elbjazz

Jazz-Festival around the port of Hamburg

Every year the ELBJAZZ Festival in the port of Hamburg is an absolute must for all jazz lovers. In 2022, the Port of Hamburg will once again become a hub for jazz from all over the world.

Around 50 concerts and various venues usually with no stage - including the Blohm + Voss shipyard - make the festival a unique live experience. Music is played in the open air and indoors. The barges which transport visitors between the individual venues underline the maritime atmosphere. ELBJAZZ presents a variety of national and international artists who play different styles of jazz. The programme is characterised by a blend of stars and exciting newcomers: Let yourself go, be surprised and delighted – ELBJAZZ stands for movement, curiosity and discovery. The two-day Festival is rounded off with a diverse programme of workshops, films and art performances.

9 extraordinary stages at the Elbjazz Festival

The two most famous stages are located in the shipyard area and in the Blohm+Voss dock. Only a stone's throw away is the stage "Am Helgen". In 2022 the Shipbuilding Hall will again be part of the ELBJAZZ Festival. This is also where the Hamburg Jazz Prize will be awarded. Next to the stages in the harbour, you can also hear the jazz sounds in the Seefahrerkirche St. Katharinen in the Speicherstadt. In the Elbphilharmonie 3 stages are part of the festival. In the Great Hall and the Small Hall as well as in the Kaistudios the festival is at home! In addition, the forecourt of the Elbphilharmonie is also the place of action. And also the MS Stubnitz at the Überseebrücke offers in the ship's belly enough space for jazz lovers to enjoy a concert at an extraordinary location.
