For around six weeks long, Enjoy Jazz, the International Festival for Jazz and More, offers varied events, with the focus on Jazz, but also allied genres such as classical, pop, rock, hip-hop or electro.
At exclusive performance areas in Heidelberg, Mannheim and Ludwigshafen, Enjoy Jazz invites devotees to concert moments and master classes, matinees, symposia, parties and other exciting projects. Around 20,000 visitors and numerous journalists from the region, Germany and all over the world come every year to the Enjoy Jazz Festival.
19th Enjoy Jazz Festival Ornette Coleman, Wayne Shorter, Archie Shepp, Pharoah Sanders – Enjoy Jazz established itself in its 1999 debut not only as the biggest but also one of the most important Jazz festivals in Germany. The stage is open to jazz legends as well as avant garde rising stars on the music scene − all part of an unbelievably broad spectrum. The festival lives up to its other name, “International Festival of Jazz and Other Music“ not only through a breath-taking mix of styles: in over 70 concerts it is evident that the delineation between jazz, world music, electronic and hip-hop has blurred and that jazz in particular defines itself through its openness.
