Time for some good news!

Last summer’s Jazz Saalfelden Weekender taught us to stage live events while paying the utmost attention to our audience’s safety. Aware of the beneficial effects of music on the soul in times like these, we decided to not let January pass by unnoticed, but to face the future with confidence. Based on the current situation, we assume that the 3 Days of Jazz Festival will take place while we follow our rigorous safety protocol.

Visitors can expect six concerts at Kunsthaus Nexus in Saalfelden and two concerts at the Mining and Gothic Museum in Leogang. In 2021, our January festival will foreground Austrian bands. After circumstances prevented the band Chuffdrone from presenting its new album last summer, it will get a chance to do so in January. Featuring Gerald Preinfalk, the GeoGeMa trio will also take to the stage as will the young band Victhamin. Two trios, Edi Nulz and The Great Harry Hillman, will perform in a powerful sextet as The True Harry Nulz project. KUU will travel to the festival from Berlin and premiere songs from its new album, which will not be released until next summer. The band Gabbeh (Golnar Shahyar, Mona Matbou Riahi, and Manu Mayr) as well as the Akk:zent trio will give guest performances in the beautiful ambiance of the Mining and Gothic Museum.

We are upbeat about the future and look forward to a beautiful and—in many ways—very special weekend of music in Saalfelden.
