Ticket sales start & first highlights 2024

With great anticipation for this year's Saalfelden Jazz Festival, we are delighted to give you a first insight into the programme and present this year's theme.
The Saalfelden Jazz Festival, which will take place from 22-25 August 2024 for the 44th time in Saalfelden Leogang, is packed with excellent music, unique venues and special encounters. You can expect more than 60 concerts in the town, in the woods and fields, musical hikes and concerts on the mountain, as well as a few surprises once again. You can secure your tickets now!


We would also like to give you a sneak preview of this year's programme now:

The opening project on the main stage this year has been awarded to the Vienna-based clarinettist Mona Matbou Riahi. The Iranian-born clarinettist already wowed the audience last year with the formation "Melting Pot" at the jazz festival in the Buchbinderei Fuchs and has been a regular guest in Saalfelden with various projects in previous years. We are therefore all the more delighted that she will be performing together with musicians Dorian Concept, Manu Mayr and Lou Zon as part of the honourable opening concert on the main stage in 2024.
Another highlight in the line-up is the sextet Thérapie de couple: bandleader and saxophonist Daniel Erdmann has joined forces with Hélène Duret (clarinet/bass clarinet), Théo Ceccaldi (violin), Vincent Courtois (cello), Robert Lucaciu (double bass) and Eva Klesse (drums), world-famous and great musicians: He has brought them together for his Franco-German formation Thérapie de couple and will perform an extraordinary concert on the main stage at the Congress. Erdmann unites the members of his brilliant couple-therapeutic music group in a finely balanced, sometimes orchestral sound structure.

An Austrian project that draws its inspiration from both experimental and beat-heavy club music will make a guest appearance in Saalfelden under the title "OtherMother", featuring Arthur Fussy, Jul Dillier and Judith Schwarz.

The famous pianist Kris Davis will be presenting her brand new album, which will not be released until September, in Saalfelden in August and the busy drummer Oli Steidle will also be presenting his new album with the Killing Popes.

Theme 2024
This year's theme was designed by Austrian graphic artist Hannes Hawle. A modern design that combines the best of the Saalfelden Jazz Festival - great music in the midst of breathtaking scenery.
