Ascona and its impressive lakeside have been a major music venue for over thirty years as host to one of Switzerland’s main jazz events, in fact the only jazz event outside the United States officially sponsored by the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The atmosphere by the lakeside is transformed by the music and cuisine of Louisiana. Over 150 concerts by well-known New Orleans groups and European artists, jam sessions and tributes to the jazz legends: you will find this and much more besides at the 34th edition of JazzAscona.
Line-up 2017: Philipp Fankhauser, Paolo Jannacci, Andrews Family, Bernard “Pretty” Purdie, Quiana Lynell, Brian Carter & the Young Swagers, and many more...
