Jazzwerkstatt Peitz

Jazzwerkstatt Peitz is the oldest German avantgarde jazz festival: unique concerts were held there from 1973 to 1982. Until it was banned, the “Woodstock am Karpfenteich” was a place of longing where the rigid cultural policy of the GDR was subverted in a subtle to offensive manner. Since 2011 the Jazzwerkstatt is again continuously exploring about how contemporary jazz music can be innovatively developed further.
