4. + 5. June 2021 (POSTPONED)

Elbjazz - Main stage at shipyard Blohm+Voss

THE PUBLIC EVENT ELBJAZZ 2021 IS POSTPONED UNTIL NEXT YEAR. DIGITAL FESTIVAL WITH FREE ARTE STREAM ON 4 + 5 JUNE 2021.

Hamburg, 5 May 2021 - Due to the ongoing corona pandemic, this year’s ELBJAZZ, scheduled for 4 and 5 June, will not take place as an in-person event, and is instead postponed until 3 and 4 June 2022. All tickets purchased for ELBJAZZ 2020 or 2021 will thus remain valid for next year’s ELBJAZZ. Further information for ticket holders is available here. Advance ticket sales for ELBJAZZ on 3 and 4 June 2022 starts immediately. Tickets are available from the ELBJAZZ ticket shop. The programme for 2022 will be announced at a later date. 

Until the very end, and with great support from the Hamburg Ministry of Culture and Media, the promoter ELBJAZZ GmbH worked hard on a pandemic-compatible implementation of this year’s ELBJAZZ as part of a model project. 
ELBJAZZ festival director Alexander Schulz explains: “We very much regret that we have to postpone the festival until next year. A resolution in the recently-passed federal pandemic regulations ties all model projects to certain conditions – including the provision that such events are prohibited if the seven-day incidence exceeds 100. That is one of the main reasons why a pandemic-compatible staging of ELBJAZZ at the beginning of June is very unlikely.”

However, ELBJAZZ 2021 will not be completely erased: a digital edition is planned for
4 and 5 June. ARTE Concert and NDR Kultur will show performances by several acts – including some of the artists originally confirmed for this year – in a free stream. The digital edition is supported by the Hamburg Ministry of Culture and Media. More information on the digital programme will follow shortly.

Schulz adds: “Apart from the disappointment of not being able to host ELBJAZZ 2021 as usual, there is also a ray of hope and excited anticipation. With the digital edition on 4 and 5 June we will bring the ELBJAZZ sound directly into homes via streamed concerts. I am also delighted that the dates for the next festival have already been set for 3 and 4 June 2022, and we have already been able to open advanced sales. In this context, my very big thanks go to our partner Blohm+Voss. The shipyard has already assured us that we will once again be able to stage ELBJAZZ on their grounds next year. Many thanks for this valuable support! We also had good news from the Elbphilharmonie: it will also be a venue again in 2022.”
