Cologne Jazzweek is entering its third round

The journey continues. Once again in 2023, unique artists from the Cologne, German and international jazz scene will be performing on the many stages throughout the city. Whether at Stadtgarten, LOFT, King Georg, Open Air, the Ehrenfeld Clubs or our new venues such as Filmhaus, the Klaus von Bismarck Sendesaal at WDR or the Philharmonie, new encounters will take place and new stories will be written. Be part of the festival summer 2023 and immerse in the wonderful world of improvised music!


Support association founded!

As a young festival, we are dependent on active support and donations. That’s why we are happy that the “Friends of Cologne Jazzweek e.V.” association was founded at the beginning of August! We are looking forward to your support, whether actively as a volunteer or by donation! Many thanks in advance!

On April 28th, the German Jazz Award was presented in Bremen. Together with some colleagues from Cologne, we set out and could hardly believe it: We have been awarded as Festival of the Year 2022. A great honor and appreciation of our work over the last two years. We thank and congratulate all other nominees and award winners!
