“A wax musi” is the objective at the jazz festival in Saalfelden, so it should be honest, raw and unaffected. It should be an experimental place where all of the most innovative playing styles can be heard. What began in a stable in 1979 has long since found its main stage at the Saalfelden Congress. There are also concerts in the Nexus art gallery and in the town hall square with free admission.
Finally, world class jazz is offered here amongst the Salzburg mountains for four days. Whilst you’re at the top of the jazz world, why not also ascend the mountain pastures? The culinary range on offer at the Steinalm pastures, the old Leogang blacksmith’s, the Vorderkühbühelhof cow pastures and the Huggenberg mountain inn ensure that you don’t have to travel with heavy luggage. You can also attend the concerts on the pastures free of charge.
