Another year is coming to an end. Do you also feel like celebrating the old and the new properly? For our part: We are absolutely in the mood for a big event! That’s the reason why, for the second time, we are presenting our four days Soul-, Funk- and Jazz Party around New Year’s Eve. With the SMOOTH JAZZ FESTIVAL AUGSBURG we bring as usual absolute top names, as well as outstanding young guns of the international Smooth Jazz Scene to Augsburg. Three festival evenings we celebrate in the stunning and evocative atmosphere of the Parktheater at Kurhaus Göggingen. The program includes two live concerts and an after-show party per day – on Thursday Shakatak and Jeannette Harris as well as on Friday Brian Bromberg and Oli Silk & JJ Sansaverino. The fantastic highlight at the Parktheater is the big New Year’s Eve: Euge Groove’s show is followed by a year-end countdown on stage and subsequent Allstar Jam.

Our partner location this year is again the “Dorint Hotel” at Wittelsbacher Park, which provides shuttle busses to the Parktheater on all festival evenings. The hotel itself does not only host the New Year’s Concert feat. singer Lindsey Webster and saxophonist Elan Trotman, which ends the festival smoothly, but also the gala dinner before the New Year’s Eve show. Together with the Dorint Team we have newly conceived the dinner. Be surprised!
The official sale for festival packages starts on September 1, 2016 in our online-shop:
