Stockholm Jazz Festival is one of Sweden’s oldest festivals and one of Stockholm’s biggest events. In 2021 the festival will be back, 15-24 October and bigger than ever spreading jazz on over 60 venues around Stockholm. It is a festival with a solid reputation in the music world and considered one of Europe’s most well-kept and pleasant festivals which for a while has had its home on the island of Skeppsholmen. With the move to Skansen in 2011 the festival began its journey into the future. Since 2012, the festival is housed indoors, on the best stages in Stockholm. In 2014 the festival expanded to 10 full days. Attendance exceeded 21,000 and some of the notable highlights included Jamie Cullum, Angelique Kidjo and the Wayne Shorter Quartet. The latter concert was broadcasted live by the renowned French television channel Mezzo to over 16 million households in 46 countries!
Tove and Ingvar Jensen are owners of the Stockholm Jazz Festival since 2009. With great commitment and a strong desire to develop a sustainable model for one of our most beloved festivals they follow the process closely during the year. Tove and Ingvar support, incidentally, a number of other cultural activities in Sweden, mainly in art and film.

How do I buy tickets?
Tickets are available for each stage. You can find links and more information on the program page of this website. Ticket prices differ for each concert.
Is there a festival pass?
No, you need to purchase a separate ticket for each concert. The festival stages differ in audience capacity and therefore a single festival pass would not guarantee a place at all the concerts. Instead you can buy tickets to the concerts you want to see and guarantee your spot.
Standing or sitting?
Stockholm Concert Hall has numbered seats. Fasching has guaranteed seating for those that book dining tickets. Regarding other stages, we refer you to the respective stage for more information.
