Since 2016 the tickets do not include the trade fair anymore. The gala concert and other special concerts can be visited with a separate ticket. All ticket options can be found on our website.
On the jazzahead! days you can also buy your tickets on-site at the ticket counter in hall 7 but we suggest purchasing them in advance, especially the single tickets for the showcases because they are occasionally sold out.
As a visitor, you do not get the special benefits of a professional participant, exhibitor or co-exhibitor.
