The JazzAscona festival, taking place in Ascona (Switzerland) in early Summer, is one of the most renowned events worldwide devoted to traditional jazz and other African-American styles of music. For almost 30 years, the festival provided a unique place for musicians and jazz lovers to meet and share their passion within the enchanting surroundings of Lake Maggiore.

JazzAscona features every year more than 300 artists from across the globe, many special events, and more than 200 concerts and 400 hours of live music during ten days, ranging from traditional New Orleans-style jazz to swing and including other genres such as blues, R&B, gospel, and soul.

Artists and bands are set to perform in bars, restaurants and hotels during the day, and on the stages on the lakeside in the evenings, transforming Ascona into a maze of small 'jazz clubs', producing a wonderful atmosphere between musicians and the diverse audience of fans and aficionados.
