‘One of the world's largest and most ambitious festivals’ (Downbeat)

Thank you.  

We'd just like to say a big thanks to everyone who made the 2017 EFG London Jazz Festival  Festival the glittering success it was.

To every artist who performed and every Festival venue, to all our participants and our sponsors. To everyone who worked on the Festival, and all our wonderful volunteers.  

And last, but by no means least - to each and every member of the audiences, at our shows and Freestages.  Thank you.  You helped us make the 25th Festival very special indeed.

We’re already firmly in the planning stages for the future, the 2018 Festival runs from Friday 16 November – Sunday 25 November.

 See you down the front!



In a groundbreaking partnership with The Space, we are live streaming the Festival's opening gala on Friday 10 November - watch below from 8.30pm.

The Festival returns for ten days jam-packed with heavyweight musical talent from across the globe, bringing a wealth of international legends to London’s concert halls – with new music, emerging British stars and outstanding collaborations all added into the mix.

We have more than 350 performances in 60 venues, so come and join us on a journey, a voyage of musical discovery; the past, present and future of jazz. 

We have a full range of the genre’s talent for you – from jazz masters flexing their chops at the concert halls to fresh young bands ripping it up at the clubs, plus a whole host of work aimed at families and young people

A lot of our events are free, too – so there’s no excuse not to join us.

Support your local jazz club and visit a glitzy concert hall. Follow the music wherever it takes you – a late-night hang is recommended – and wake up with the buzz of last night’s fun in your head.

We are the EFG London Jazz Festival. 
We are 25

Culture is in the DNA of London, and live music makes a vital contribution to the life and soul of the city. I would encourage everyone to explore the city fully and take part in London’s vibrant music scene this autumn.

Great international festivals such as the EFG London Jazz Festival show that London is open to creativity and to people from across the world.
