Concerts in the Grand Hall

In 2020 the Elbphilharmonie’s Grand Hall will host three concerts on both festival days of the ELBJAZZ. To ensure that as many ELBJAZZ ticket holders as possible are able to attend a concert in the Elbphilharmonie, we are working with a reservation system that gives the first 11,000 ticket holders the opportunity to register to attend one concert in the Elbphilharmonie during ELBJAZZ. There is no entitlement to attend one of the concerts in the Elbphilharmonie. ELBJAZZ friday day ticket holders can choose one of three concerts on Friday; ELBJAZZ saturday day ticket can choose one of three concerts on Saturday. Two day ticket holders will likewise only be able to choose one concert – but they will be able to choose betwe­­en attending an Elbphilharmonie concert on Friday or on Saturday.

All ELBJAZZ ticket purchasers who made their purchase before 13 November 2019 received automatically a reservation link by email, which allowed them to make a reservation for all the tickets of one booking in one step. It was possible to make this reservations from 13 November to 13 December 2019 (subject to availability).

Those, who would like to buy a ticket for ELBJAZZ 2020 after 12 November 2019, can do so and book their Elbphilharmonie concert directly during the purchase process.

Seat allocation for Elbphilharmonie concerts will be determined on the day of the concert. It will not be possible to reserve specific seats in advance. No exceptions. Seats will be allocated randomly and seat assignments will be final. For admission to the Elbphilharmonie, you will need to exchange the ELBJAZZ ticket and the voucher for the selected concert in the Elbphilharmonie for an ELBJAZZ festival wristband and a seat ticket at the ticket desk during the event.

Please note: personal data provided by the ticket holder will be processed and stored electronically for ELBJAZZ as part of the registration process; the ticket holder will be required to give his/her consent to this during the registration process.
