• What is the jazzopen?

      The jazzopen is a music festival that has been held annually in Stuttgart since 1994. The two terms "jazz" and "open" stand for the central musical orientation of the festival: jazz as the integral and basic part of the festival is side by side with the adjacent musical genres such as blues, soul, rock and pop music on an equal footing. The festival takes place annually in July on several stages. The organiser and founder is Opus Festival-, Veranstaltungs- und Management GmbH Opus Festival-, Veranstaltungs- und Management GmbH.
