‘A dazzling display across the musical spectrum’ (★★★★★ Guardian)

2,000+ artists. 300+ gigs. 50+ venues. 24 years. 1 city. #jazzlife

Every year this 10-day celebration of jazz delivers a mix of world-class artists and emerging stars and takes the music to a massive and ever-growing audience. The EFG London Jazz Festival has a reputation for bringing the best and freshest music to the capital, with a wide-ranging programme of concerts, commissions, club events, talks, and an expansive learning and participation programme.  

From Miguel Atwood Ferguson paying tribute to late hip hop producer and beatmaker J Dilla, to ice skating with a live soundtrack by Chris Philips and trombonist Ashley Slater, alongside FREE performances, radio broadcasts and events for children and young people, it’s fair to say that EFG London Jazz Festival 2016 was a fantastic experience.
