Welcome to Worms: Jazz & Joy!


Having electrified a large audience for more than twenty years, the open-air music festival ‘Worms: Jazz & Joy’ is definitely one of the highlights in the larger region’s cultural calendar. Music aficionados throng four of the town’s squares around the venerable Worms Cathedral to listen to the big names of national and international jazz music, such as Al Di Meola or Charlie Mariano. Strolling from square to square and soaking the historic ambience is what adds a unique charm to the festival. Visitors are not only attracted by famous jazz musicians and bands, but also by artists of different genres appearing in special concerts. Audiences got ecstatic when world stars such as Bob Dylan, Bob Geldof, Jennifer Rush or Joe Cocker entered the stage in Worms!

Seasoned jazz maniacs and lovers of other styles of music alike will take pleasure in the festival’s programme. In the course of years, ‘Worms: Jazz & Joy’ has opened up to musical genres other than jazz, which accounts for the ‘joy’ factor of the festival. Visitors can revel in soul, swing, pop and rock on the different stages. The festival’s broad range of musical styles suits all kinds of tastes. It is this well-balanced fusion of genres and exquisite jazz that makes ‘Worms: Jazz & Joy’ a success year by year.



19 – 21 August 2022: A Vibrant Fringe Programme

The festival’s irresistible musical programme is topped off by an enticing range of culinary delights. The region’s best chefs and winemakers pamper their guests with all kinds of dainties and treats. The little ones are also catered for. At the weekend children’s party, the southern portal of the cathedral becomes a play area with join-in activities galore so there is no chance to get bored. Even the churches put jazz music on their agenda during the festival, holding special s(w)ing-along jazz services. Everybody is welcome.
