33RD NEWCASTLE JAZZ FESTIVAL
SPONSORED by REGIONAL AUSTRALIA BANK
Friday 27th, Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th August 2021.
The diverse choice and smorgasbord of music and the very affordable ticket prices, representing incredible value for money, are the keys to the festival’s continuing success.
It is regarded as the best jazz festival in Australia.
More than one hundred and fifty musicians will be blowing up a storm and presenting over 60 hours of music across the three days of the festival.
The venue is the iconic Newcastle City Hall where music will be on four stage areas across the weekend.
There will be bars and food available on site and there are various cafes and restaurants just a short walk from City Hall.
The Newcastle light rail can quickly transport patrons from nearby hotels and parking areas to the City Hall.
The diverse range of music includes trad, mainstream and contemporary jazz, big bands, swing, blues, a jazz vocal group and jazz/boogie piano.
Dance floors in the Concert hall, Banquet and Hunter rooms, will cater for those who like to move to the music.
