ELBJAZZ 2020 CANCELLED DUE TO CORONA PANDEMIC. MORE INFORMATION ON THE FURTHER COURSE OF ACTION TO FOLLOW SHORTLY.

Hamburg, 17 April 2020 - Due to the ongoing Corona pandemic, and based on the General Ruling by the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg dated 17 April 2020, which has prohibited large-scale events until 31 August 2020, ELBJAZZ, which was planned to be held on 5 and 6 June, must be cancelled. 

The festival promoter, ELBJAZZ GmbH, welcomes this decision as an understandable and important safety measure for the population, and will do everything in its power to ensure smooth communication with visitors. More information on the further course of action will follow shortly.

The head of the ELBJAZZ festival, Alexander Schulz, stressed: “We consider the political decision to be absolutely correct and we support it in all its consequences. In such an exceptional situation as this, it is important to show solidarity, since the health of each one of us has the highest priority.” 

Schulz continues: “Naturally it makes us very sad to have to cancel ELBJAZZ. We would have celebrated the 10th edition this year – and we are just as disappointed about the cancellation as all the countless visitors and the artists who were due to perform this year. Not only has our entire team worked towards this festival weekend over many months – our long-term partners such as Blohm+Voss, to whom I wish to express special thanks here, and several other stakeholders have provided so much support, and continue to do so. I would also like to assure our guests that we aim to inform them about the further course of action as quickly and extensively as possible.”
