Bournemouth has a strong jazz scene scene made up of musicians, big bands and vocalists, when you marry this with a fantastic array of venues across the town it seems only fitting for Bournemouth Jazz Festival to invite a variety of nationally and internationally respected artists to make up a truly special UK line up.
Bournemouth Jazz Festival 2016 caters for all Jazz Fans from connoisseurs of modern Jazz, Global World Jazz to the toe tapping excitement of big band and swing, there's something for everyone.
This year's mix of international jazz artists, up-and-coming artists and open air festival performances in our Jazz Festival Village is set to be a bumper weekend of Jazz.
Young up-and-coming musicians are of huge importance, and Bournemouth Jazz Festival recognise that by organising a full Sunday programme aimed at young musicians. We start with youth workshops and jam sessions with some of the regions top jazz musicians, followed by the JAZZ Factor an opportunity for young artists to show what they can do.
The day will be rounded off with an early evening concert including performances from Dorset Youth Jazz Orchestra and Bournemouth University Big Band, the JAZZ Factor winners will also be invited to take part during an award ceremony.
