JazzAscona is about to celebrate its 33rd anniversary.
Each year, the festival’s program contains over 200 concerts and more than 400 hours of live music, from New Orleans Traditional Jazz to Chicago, from swing to mainstream, from ragtime to gospel, not forgetting excursions into blues, R&B, soul and latin, and funk rhythms. Artists and bands are set to perform in bars, restaurants and hotels during the day, and on the stages on the lakeside in the evenings, transforming Ascona into a maze of small 'jazz clubs', producing a wonderful atmosphere between musicians and the diverse audience of fans and aficionados.
Two weekends of great music. From Sunday to Thursday, the evening performances on the lakeside stages will be free of charge whereas 5 special events with top stars of the jazz and international scene will have admission fees.
Order the tickets on ticketcorner.ch or by Ascona-Locarno Tourism (tel. 0848 091 091).
