Concerts in the Grand Hall

The Elbphilharmonie's Grand Hall will once again be an ELBJAZZ venue in 2019 and will host three concerts on each of the two ELBJAZZ festival days (Friday + Saturday, 31 May + 1 June 2019). A total of 11,000 ELBJAZZ ticket holders has the opportunity to make a reservation to attend one of the six ELBJAZZ concerts to be held in the Elbphilharmonie’s Grand Hall during ELBJAZZ 2019. Registration for concerts at the Elbphilharmonie’s Grand Hall is now available. You can find the artists who will be performing at the Elbphilharmonie and the performance times below.

All ticket holders who purchased their tickets by 19 November 2018 and are among the first 11,000 people to purchase an ELBJAZZ Ticket have been automatically emailed a personalised access link on 20 November 2018 that allows them to reserve one Elbphilharmonie concert per ELBJAZZ Ticket. The reservation must be made between 20 November and 20 December 2018.

Those who would like to attend one of the Elbphilharmonie concerts during ELBJAZZ 2019 and did not buy an ELBJAZZ Ticket by 19 November 2018 can, since 20 November 2018, purchase an ELBJAZZ Ticket and reserve an Elbphilharmonie concert (subject to availability) at the same time.

On Site

1 Have your ticket + voucher ready

Please make sure you bring along a printed version of your ELBJAZZ ticket including the voucher for a concert at the Elbphilharmonie's Grand Hall. Ticket holders who booked their tickets before 20 Nov. 2018 at the ELBJAZZ ticket shop received a ticket plus a voucher granting access to the Elbphilharmonie. Please also have this document ready.

2 Get festival wristband + seat-assignment ticket

To get admission to the concert you have booked, please exchange your ticket (+ your voucher if required) at the ticket desk – at least two hours before the start of the concert – for a festival wristband and a seat-assignment ticket. Seats are allotted randomly so that seats cannot be chosen. If you wish to have adjacent seats, these wristbands and seat-assignment tickets must be collected at the same time.

At certain times there will be an increased number of visitors; for this reason we recommend exchanging your tickets as early as possible (see ticket desk opening hours). Please note that every concert-goer must be present in person. The festival wristbands are attached directly by our staff and cannot be handed out for third persons.

We kindly ask holders of two-day tickets including an Elbphilharmonie concert on Saturday to pick up their wristbands and seat-assigment tickets at the Blohm+Voss ticket counter on Friday.


3 Enjoy your concert at the Elbphilharmonie

With your seat reservation and your wristband, you will be admitted to the Elbphilharmonie. Earliest admission is one hour before the concert begins. We hope you will enjoy the ELBJAZZ 2019 and your concert at the Elbphilharmonie.



Concerts in the Recital Hall

Pre-registration via our reservation system is not required for the ELBJAZZ 2019 concerts in the Elbphilharmonie's Recital Hall. You will, however, need a seat-assignment ticket to gain admission to the Recital Hall concerts. Seat-assignment tickets (subject to availability) may be picked up at the day of the concert, two hours before the concert you want to visit starts, at the Elbphilharmonie Visitor Center. You must have a valid festival wristband. For reasons of safety, admission to the Recital Hall is limited.
