Jazz by the Sea Festival

Start Date: 11/06/2017
End Date:

Dive into seven days of discovery as world class jazz music comes to Bournemouth.


Throughout festival week there will be live jazz performances in various locations including retails outlets, shopping centres, music venues, restaurants, bars, hotels and outside spaces.

New this year, Jazz by the Sea Festival will be launching a unique Jazzmobile. A self-contained mobile stage, specially designed to present live music in public places across the area throughout festival week.

Jazz by the Sea Festival will cater for all members of the community, with performances for the elderly in care homes, as well as an event for “jazz stars of tomorrow” which will engage students and young people through local schools, colleges and Bournemouth University. Jazz by the Sea Festival will also launch a brand new concept to celebrate international music and culture, with the ETC International College, which will aim to engage with overseas students.

The festival will close with a unique World Jazz Jamboree, a day and evening event comprising a series of spectacular concerts showcasing jazz music from around the world. With various performances during festival week being broadcast live on Jazz FM, follow us on social media to ensure you don’t miss a thing: @JazzMusicFest & www.facebook.com/JazzByTheSeaFestival
