London Jazz Festival

'One of the best jazz festivals in the world' (The Guardian)

One of the UK’s landmark musical celebrations, the EFG London Jazz Festival has long been acclaimed for delivering a mixture of world-class artists and emerging stars, and energizing audiences both new and old. Many of our 2014 concerts are now on sale, giving a snapshot of the variety the Festival offers. 

Within these first shows, the Festival’s reputation as a true innovator, bringing the best and the freshest music to the capital, is further cemented; with many more outstanding acts, commissions, and an expansive learning and participation programme still to be announced.

'It's at times like this, when the annual London Jazz Festival rolls around, that revered figures in the music form seem to unify the concert-going jazz community into one loving whole.' (**** Evening Standard)

We will be announcing further shows throughout the coming months; please join our mailing list for all the latest news from both the Festival and Serious, the powerhouse behind it, who also promote great jazz throughout the year - with shows coming up soon including Zakir Hussain and Hugh Masekela
