Jazz at the Institute

Concerts take place regularly in the acoustically excellent vaulted cellar under the Jazzinstitut. Famous as well as lesser-known musicians perform here mostly on Fridays. Verein zur Förderung des zeitgenössischen Jazz  in Darmstadt e.V. ("Förderverein Jazz") hosts its own concert series almost every Friday, and, in addition, a jazz jam session always on the last friday of the month. Incidentally, the association's program has already been awarded the "APPLAUS - Award for the Program Planning of Independent Venues" by the Federal Commissioner for Culture and the Media five times (2016, 2018, 2019, 2022 and 2023).

For events organized by the Förderverein Jazz, we recommend taking a look at their website, where current information on upcoming concerts are announced and where you can also buy tickets for the concerts online.

Musicians from the Darmstadt area eventually rent the concert venue for events under own management, i.e. for music releases or the presentation of their latest shows. If you are interested in renting the venue, please write to jazz@jazzinstitut.de. In the gallery and the stairways of the Jazzinstitut itself, changing exhibitions can be hosted.
