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.

Also performing are cool cats like Bobby McFerrin, Jamie Cullum, Camilla George and Chilly Gonzales, to name a few.
