Jazzfest Bonn presents contemporary creative jazz. It closes a gap in high culture, enriching the city of Bonn in its modern development as a city of science, city of the United Nations and as a site of companies operating worldwide. Jazzfest Bonn is a charitable organization for the promotion of jazz music. Its aim is to show the audience the high quality of regional and national jazz musicians next to international stars. Besides the great pleasure of listening to well-known musicians there are also always new ones to be discovered – and often it is just that, what the audience especially appreciates. The prices for the concert evenings are moderate – the goal is to keep culture affordable for all. Additionally during every festival, there is a student allocation on a special day, during which tickets cost students 15 Euro only. With its venues like Bundeskunsthalle, Post Tower, Brotfabrik or Haus der Geschichte Jazzfest Bonn incorporates important sites in Bonn. The city deliberately plays a role in the choice of venues. Here selected musicians and formations present their music, which especially suite the specific auditorium. It is the aim of Jazzfest Bonn to make the festival and Bonn a nationally and internationally important site for jazz. With its programme, PR and the reactions of press, radio and TV it is on a very good path in achieving its aims.
