13th 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 2023, the Port of Hamburg will once again become a hub for jazz from all over the world.

At ELBJAZZ, the Port of Hamburg serves as the backdrop for a unique musical event: thousands of jazz fans travel to Hamburg to experience one of Europe's largest jazz festivals, where the unmistakable maritime flair of the Hanseatic city meets musical diversity. Well-known stars and newcomers, around 50 concerts and diverse stages spread across the two festival centers: the Elbphilharmonie and the extraordinary shipyard grounds, plus massive cranes and large docks - that's ELBJAZZ!

The 2023 program promises an unforgettable anniversary

In addition to jazz, the genres of pop, hip hop, soul, indie, funk and various variations will be represented. This year, numerous international acts will once again be taking part. Among them so far are Wendy MCNeil, Cécile McLorin Salvant. A complete list of all artists can be found here.

9 exceptional stages at ELBJAZZ

The two most famous stages are located in the shipyard area and the Blohm+Voss dock. Only a stone's throw away is the stage "Am Helgen". In addition to the stages in the harbor, the seafarers' church of St. Katharinen in the Speicherstadt also plays host to jazz sounds. In the Elbphilharmonie 3 stages are part of the festival. Both 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 enough space in the ship's belly for jazz lovers to enjoy a concert in an extraordinary place.
