An unlikely match made in heaven: the sound of smooth jazz in the industrious Port of Hamburg. First organised in 2010, ELBJAZZ has grown into one of Germany’s most popular jazz festivals. Around 50 musical acts of international allure take the stage at unique and unusual areas in Hamburg’s port area, ranging from the Blohm+Voss shipyards to the majestic Elbphilharmonie concert hall. Special launch boats transport festival-goers between the different venues — adding to the festival’s distinct maritime spirit.
The lineup for ELBJAZZ 2019 included among others: JAMIE CULLUM, SOPHIE HUNGER, ENSEMBLE ALTIN GÜN, J.P. BIMENI, KAMAAL WILLIAMS, THE SAVAGE ROSE and many more.
