From Friday,9 March until Sunday, 18 March 2018 - Jazz will rule over all of Gastein Valley in Salzburger Land.
This year, the 17th edition of Snow Jazz Gastein will remain true to its theme of "great songs & other big things". For 10 full days, visitors will be able to experience a broad palette of jazz. From a powerful soulful voice set against the Big Band sound, to a Brazilian trio and the saxophone greats of Europe. Or, how about an afro-euro-oriental blend? Since 2002, the absolute stars of the jazz world have been gathering here, shaping rhythms and sounds into unique concert experiences. Jazz is a mixture of everything. Set out on an adventure for the ears here with us in Gastein, including premieres and new discoveries from the jazz world.
The venues for these jazz sounds aren't just found in the valley either - music will also be made daily on the terraces outside Gastein's ski huts from 12 to 4 pm. With magical views of the Hohe Tauern mountains thrown in. That said, the center and heart of the festival is indeed the Sägewerk in Bad Hofgastein. Several years ago, Sepp Grabmaier remodeled this former saw mill into a unique event location. Originally an insider tip, for a number of years now it has been a popular gathering spot for jazz lovers. One of many cultural hot spots in Gastein Valley, it isn't just during the days of Snow Jazz that an astonishing selection of fantastic performers stand on its stage. The Sägewerk offers a colorful program throughout the year - ranging from concerts to cabaret.
Tickets for the Snow Jazz Festival can be bought either for individual concerts or in the form of various festival passes.
Why not enjoy an entire weekend with us here in Gastein Valley during Snow Jazz. Explore the ski slopes in the morning, recharge your batteries at a spa resort in the afternoon, then spend your evening listening to jazz greats at a variety of locations.
