The Jazz à Vienne festival

Since it was created in 1981 under Jean-Paul Boutellier’s leadership, the Jazz à Vienne Festival has been an annual celebration of jazz during the first half of July.

Every year, over 200,000 festivalgoers flock to performances by a thousand musicians on four different stages.

The Théâtre Antique, which was built in the 1st century CE, is Jazz à Vienne’s epicentre. Its unique acoustics and history make it an exceptional venue for both audiences and the internationally renowned musicians who perform there. The festival is a true blend of old and new, an authentic musical fusion. Rich in its diversity, it aims to be a pluralist space that is open to all.
