The Vienna Jazz Festival, started in 1991, is a fixed point on the international festival scene and a milestone for Austria and Vienna´s cultural landscape. The Vienna Jazz Fest is a modern, urbane festival with an international reputation which places it as one of three most important Jazz festivals in the world, a factor which has only boosted Vienna´s position as an attractive travel destination.
Vienna is often referred to as the world capital of music. Alongside classical music, waltzes and opera, the city also offers a rich landscape of Jazz, Blues, Soul and World Music. The Vienna Jazz Fest is proof that the Austrian capital is also a true metropolis of Jazz and other forms of popular music.
The secret of the Vienna Jazz Festival is that top-rank musical artists are allowed to perform in some of the city´s best venues. Europe´s summer cultural scene and the Vienna Jazz Festival are no inseparable elements. The Festival associated itself at the outset with places and venues where one could feel the flair of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Sigmund Freud or Robert Musil.
