The 2019 JazzFest is welcoming greats from across the globe, from international superstar Gilberto Gil, a founder of the tropicalia movement and former Brazilian minister of culture, to Austrian native Harri Stojka, guitar virtuoso.
The JazzFest spans more than two weeks, from June 24 to July 10, and takes place at locations all over the city. Free concerts will take place at the Rathausplatz on June 30, July 1 and July 3, featuring the Vienna Big Band Project, Remy. X Band and Soundstairs – but to catch a glimpse of the true greats, you’ll need a ticket – the full program is available here.
Fernanda Cunha, famous for her colorful repertoire, brings her vocal talent to the Reigen on July 6. This experienced Brazilian musician will join heavy-hitters like Helbe Machado, Afonso Pais, Fagner Wesley and Robin Gadernaier on stage for a one-night performance.
Dusko Goykovich, a Montenegro native and trumpeter known for bringing new melodies to jazz and considered one of Europe’s greatest jazz musicians, is playing at Jazzland. Spectators visiting from July 8 to July 10 can see him play his horn and show off his chops.
These talents will be scatting throughout “The Music City” for another week. Tickets range between €27-€99 from venue to venue. Check out the full program for more information.
