The festival is a firm favorite on the local music scene and is successfully making a name for itself across Northern Ireland and beyond as it grows in stature and attracts audiences from across the country to experience up and coming jazz talent, international artists and local performers. Since its inception the festival has steadily broadened its scope to include jive, swing, boogie, dance, rhythm and blues in addition to traditional and more mainstream type jazz. The festival is a true reflection of the cutting edge of musical talent in the city and offers the perfect opportunity for visitors to experience at first hand the city’s reputation as a young, vibrant city on the cusp of new opportunities and celebration.
The festival is synonymous with getting everyone involved and creating a real buzz and energy across the city. It has a broad appeal, attracting audiences from all ages and musical tastes with a strong family friendly focus and the ability to get the city to its feet with a scorching blend of musical sounds.
