The Algarve Smooth Jazz Festival 2020 is postponed to April 27 – May 2, 2021.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT from the 9. Mallorca Smooth Jazz Festival 2021 – Travel update

On 21st of June 2020, Mallorca (Spain) lifted the quarantine duty for arriving foreign travellers and opened the borders for most European countries. In addition, the safety protocols were issued, allowing a smooth festival production in consideration of all participants’ health and safety being the first priority.
Unfortunately, in the beginning of July 2020, US and European authorities decreed to uphold the travel bans/restrictions between USA and Europe due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Against the background that nearly all announced artists are USA based, these governmental decrees do not allow any planning reliability and will make it impossible for us to ensure the festival experience and atmosphere we owe all guests for October 2020.

For these reasons, the 9th MALLORCA SMOOTH JAZZ FESTIVAL is rescheduled due to COVID-19 pandemic to the beginning of October 2021.

Very sad, but it is the right choice for everyone. We are acting now so you do not have to worry how the current environment will affect your festival reservation or weigh upon any decision you may wish to make. Disappointment is certain, but it is better to look forward to a safe and complete experience in 2021, than to endure the anxiety of a music travel in October 2020.

We are looking forward to seeing you in October 2021.

Stay healthy. Best regards,

Sandra & Christian
