Covid-19 Update

In these surreal days and weeks of coronavirus emergency, we're all facing very peculiar times and our first thoughts of solidarity and thankfulness go out to all the people who are primarily involved in fighting the pandemic, taking care of the sick or helping us with our everyday needs. But we are also well aware that musicians and artists are facing heavy consequences of the many unfortunately necessary cancellations and difficult choices.

As you can imagine, the uncertainty of the Covid-19 situation and its unpredictable evolution make the organisation and planning of JazzAscona very challenging. However, the festival team carries on working in the hope of being able to present 2020’s program as soon as possible and to welcome you to Ascona at the end of June.
The Line Up is complete, with many exciting artists, big names and over 250 concerts.

As the programme, depending on the evolution of the situation, could be subject to important changes, we believe it would be inappropriate to make further announcements for the moment.

We all hope to talk about music again as soon as possible and that we will be able to give you more details in a few weeks.
