The XJazz Festival will be held for the eighth time in May 2022. The festival presents a broad and contemporary understanding of jazz that includes electronic music, singer/songwriters and neo-classical music.

Showcasing the Berlin Jazz Scene

The focus of the festival is the current Berlin music scene. Artists living and working in Berlin will play shows in unique constellations. More than 70 concerts in 10 locations took place in 2022.

Crossing Stylistic Boundaries

"For us, the main thing is to represent the new spirit in the music scene. There are no more style boundaries. People appreciate each other and have fun together," says curator Sebastian Studnitzky. "We present artists who make fresh, innovative and genre-crossing music. Both with the artist selection and the venues, we want to attract new interested audiences who are up for exciting acts."
