Admission-free concerts

15 May 2024
For the 30th anniversary of the jazzopen, which will set the tone in Stuttgart's city centre from 18 to 29 July, there will once again be a large number of free open stage concerts. To be more precise: more than ever, 16 special and high-quality concerts. A few months ago, a public-private partnership was agreed between the city of Stuttgart and the two jazzopen premium sponsors Sparda-Bank Baden-Württemberg and Mastercard with the aim of creating an exceptional concert programme for all music lovers.

Lockers at Schlossplatz

30 April 2024
Who hasn't been there? You come straight from work or a little shopping trip to the jazzopen and don't know where to put your bags. Generally speaking, it's better to leave large bags at home, but for all those who have no other option, we will be offering lockers at the Schlossplatz for the first time during the festival to store bags and rucksacks. There will be two different locker sizes on site: a small locker (9.5 cm x 19 cm x 32.5 cm) and a large locker (24 cm x 20 cm x 32 cm). But the range is limited. So if you want to be on the safe side, you can reserve a locker now. How does the reservation work? Simply click on the following link, enter the desired day and size and relax and enjoy the jazzopen.

Donny McCaslin concert rescheduled

Unfortunately, there are always unforeseen circumstances when planning a festival. So we have to inform you that Kyle Eastwood's concert on 18 July has had to be cancelled.

This has resulted in another change to our programme: Donny McCaslin, who was originally scheduled to perform at the SpardaWelt Eventcenter on 25 July, will now be gracing us a week earlier on Thursday, 18 July at the BIX Jazzclub.

All those who have already bought tickets for Kyle Eastwood or Donny McCaslin will receive an e-mail with further details. If you have any questions, you can also contact us by e-mail at
