Jazzaar Festival 2020 cancelled due to Corona Virus
As of 13th March, 2020, due to the ban by the Federal Council in Berne on events with 100 or more people until April 30, the scheduled Jazzaar Festival 2020 for April 13 – 20 is now cancelled!
The two productions will however be postponed to Jazzaar Festival 2021 (April 12 – 20, 2021).
It is in this context that the Jazzaar Festival has a responsibility to ensure the safety of the public, artists and its volunteers in the face of this threat. We apologise for any inconvenience to our audience that have already purchased the tickets.
In these cases, Starticket will pay the customer the full amount (including all additional fees, postage costs and any ticket protection insurance).
The Jazzaar Festival Team thanks the loyalty and understanding of its festival visitors, artists and volunteers as well as the invaluable support of its sponsors, partners and friends.
