Peter Materna is creative director and managing director of Jazzfest Bonn. Peter Materna founded this format in 2010, with the idea to give creative, contemporary jazz a stage in Bonn. „I wanted to fill a gap with this festival and enrich the city with a further cultural colour.” Indeed he has succeeded in the past six years to find exceptionally nice concert venues and to fill them year after year with suitable, high quality music. A concept that appeals, since often enough concerts are sold out already briefly after the ticket sale starts.
