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

The Festival returns for ten days from Friday 16 November to Sunday 25 November 2018.

Our first line-up announcements will be made in mid-March - please sign up to our newsletter to be the first to know our plans.

Expect to see the full range of heavyweight musical talent from right across the globe, with the festival's usual mixture of the jazz masters flexing their chops, the cutting-edge young bands making a stir, international legends with a wealth of fresh new music, emerging British stars and outstanding collaborations and commissions all added into the mix.

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.
