Stages of the Festival

Every single stage of the festival captivates with its very own character: the sophisticated Mainstage with its main concerts at the Congress Saalfelden, the spin-offs and cheeky performances at the Shortcuts, the variety of free City Tracks at the park, the Kunsthaus Nexus, the Bookbindery Fuchs or the Otto-Gruber-Hall. In addition, various natural stages and alpine pastures around Saalfelden offer a unique combination of magnificent mountain panoramas and diversified music.

MAINSTAGE

Congress Saalfelden

As the name suggests, the Mainstage in the Congress Center is the largest venue and also the heart of the Jazzfestival. It is the room of concentrated listening with twelve concerts over three days, in which renowned names of the international jazz scene as well as numerous new discoveries come together.

NEW in 2022: For the first time, the location Gruber Hall will be integrated into the Mainstage concert ticket. This means that ticket buyers will be offered a total of 12 concerts in the Mainstage and 5 concerts in the Otto Gruber Hall from Friday to Sunday!

SHORT CUTS

Kunsthaus Nexus

With six concerts, this is the stage on which we present smaller formations on the one hand, as well as projects decoupled from the main stage - an absolute must for die-hard jazz fans!

There is always a big rush here - therefore our tip: save your tickets early enough!

 

OTTO-GRUBER-HALL

City Tracks | Mainstage

The Otto Gruber Hall was built in the 1950s and served the company "Landmaschinen Otto Gruber" as its first own workshop before it was shut down in 1996. With its central location directly in the Mittergasse Saalfelden as well as the industrial flair, it reflects the urban facet of Saalfelden. At the 41st Jazzfestival 2021, both our artists and several hundred visitors conquered this space as a new venue after a 30-year break. After last year's great success, this unique location must not be missed this year either.

 

NEW in 2022: For the first time, the location Gruber Hall will be integrated into the Mainstage concert ticket. This means that ticket buyers will be offered a total of 12 concerts in the Mainstage and 5 concerts in the Otto Gruber Hall from Friday to Sunday!

NEXUS+

City Tracks

Also in this festival year, the Kunsthaus Nexus offers a stage for the Nexus+ concerts in addition to the Shortcuts. The Nexus+ series provides a lot of boisterous atmosphere, inviting you to party until late into the night.

BOOKBINDERY FUCHS

City Tracks

As in previous years, the creative setting of Bookbindery Fuchs will be a place for musical encounters, where musicians will meet between original handicraft machines for spontaneous impro sessions. In addition, Buchbinderei Fuchs offers space for extraordinary projects. At the 41st Jazzfestival, for example, Artist in Residence Christian Reiner, bassist Christian Weber and bookbinder Christian Fuchs combined improvised jazz music with craftsmanship and printing techniques in a joint formation.

PARK

City Tracks

The city park already established itself as a venue a few years ago and has been a central meeting point for the festival ever since. With a diverse program, the open-air stage attracts both local and international audiences. A gastronomic mile offering local and international specialties as well as comfortable deck chairs and pallet furniture invite visitors to linger.

"KOLLINGWALD"

Mountain Tracks

With two concerts, the natural stage in the forest "Kollingwald" was launched in 2021 and finds a plance in the festival calender again this year. In the midst of nature, a mystical atmosphere unfolds from unique jazz music paired with the magic of the forest.

"ALMKONZERTE"

Mountain Tracks

At the two free alpine pasture concerts ("Almkonzerte"), a cozy atmosphere is guaranteed when beautiful mountain panorama meets the charm of Austrian alpine huts. In keeping with this, the audience can expect a unique mix of different music styles, which also includes the necessary dose of humor.

WE HIKE JAZZ

Mountain Tracks

The "We Hike Jazz" - music hikes offer the opportunity to explore the local landscape of Saalfelden Leogang together with the artists. During the hikes, several stops are made to enjoy the music against a magnificent mountain and natural scenery. This year there will be one hike each to the Lettlkaser-hut and to the Panorama Cinema ("Naturkino") on the Asitz. There is a limited number of participants per hike of 30 people - it's worth it to sign up quickly! Tickets are available in our Ticketshop.
