We tried everything we could hoping to meet you in June and present a programme we are proud of and eager to share with you. Many great musicians from New Orleans, internationally renowned artists and young talents were scheduled to perform in 2020. 

But we are sadly forced to throw in the towel and announce with a heavy heart that the 2020 edition of JazzAscona cannot take place.

This difficult and painful decision has become inevitable, also considering the guidelines in order to protect the public’s-, artists’ and collaborators’ health and our impossibility to guarantee necessary regulations and physical distances, not to mention the various logistical and organizational problems, such as the travel from abroad and tour cancellations.

Nevertheless, our thoughts go to the many music lovers and musicians during these difficult times and we are working hard to make sure that the great 2020 programme can be presented in 2021.

JazzAscona would like to wholeheartedly thank the public supporters, private sponsors, the audience and faithful friends, as well as the artists, technicians and team. 

See you in 2021 edition, June 24 to July 3.

Take care and talk to you soon. Stay healthy and keep swingin'!
