The unprecedented circumstances of 2020 have meant we have had to rethink how music is experienced to create a Festival that is accessible to a wide audience and transcends borders.
We aim to bring together exclusive live concerts, a digital platform that streams live and bespoke content, new commissions, interactive creative engagement projects, rare archive recordings, films, talks, interviews, webinars and a series of broadcasts.
The plan is for this to be a major live and digital event that lives in two worlds at the same time.
We are also thrilled to present our new Festival design, inspired by the multiple sounds and unifying nature of jazz, reaching out to audiences everywhere.
We continue our commitment to the UK jazz scene and its connections to the global arena, showcasing the best of international talent, new work, new collaborations, unique performances, audience interaction, and our collaboration with clubs, communities and other producers.
‘ Great international festivals such as the EFG London Jazz Festival show that London is open to creativity and to people from across the world. ’
‘ The best jazz festival on the planet ’
‘ A dazzling display across the musical spectrum ’
‘ I played the EFG London Jazz Festival a number of times, and every time it’s been a pleasure, a privilege ’
