The Outreach Festival & Academy (colloquially often called "Festival Weeks of Young Music") is a jazz meeting and takes place annually since 1993 in Schwaz in Austria. The initiator is the jazz trumpeter Franz Hackl, who lives in New York.
Since 1993, musicians have been invited year after year to teach participants and make music together in different lineups. Under the motto "Taste amplification for all", greats of the jazz and rock world, DJs and music producers come together in Schwaz to bring "living music" to the people. The Outreach Festival aims to offer original and distinctive music programming. This mix is now appreciated by festival-goers from all over Austria.
