Enjoy Jazz – International Festival for Jazz and More
September 29 – October 30 – 2023
Enjoy Jazz, the “Festival for Jazz and More”, will take place for the 25th time from September 29 to October 30, 2023. You can look forward to a top-class, and extremely diverse anniversary program with a focus on jazz, but also adjacent genres such as classical, pop, rock, hip-hop or electro.
Enjoy Jazz has become an indispensable part of the festival landscape. It has established itself worldwide as one of the most important jazz festivals. It is a lively festival that is primarily committed to the joy of great performances and the enjoyment of music. Enjoying jazz is the motto of the festival – enjoying also means taking time for the individual artists, so Enjoy Jazz usually hosts only one concert per evening and per city.
As usual, Enjoy Jazz invites you to exclusive venues in Heidelberg, Mannheim and Ludwigshafen to experience unique concert moments as well as master classes, matinees, symposiums, parties and further exciting projects.
More than 20,000 visitors and numerous journalists from the region, Germany and the world come every year to see greats like Archie Shepp, Brad Mehldau, Joshua Redman, David Murray and Herbie Hancock or trend-setting newcomers like Snarky Puppy, Cécile McLorin Salvant or Apparat. Also this year, the Enjoy Jazz audience can look forward to music legends and young exceptional talents.
Enjoy Jazz stands for innovation and openness, which means that it also always focuses on musical futures, dares to experiment and allows for positive inspiration. Enjoy Jazz’s mix of perfection and pioneering spirit has drawn the attention of national and international newspapers, as well as radio and television broadcasting. This has permitted the Festival to become an event that connects tradition and global openness in its own very special way. Music experts and Enjoy Jazz’s ever growing regular audience values this very much.
