We’re pleased to be working with Hampton By Hilton as our festival hotel partner.
Perfectly situated at the epicentre of festival activity on Westside, next door to the Festival Information Point and Musicians Afternoon Club at Velvet Music Rooms, it provides an ideal meeting point for Festivalgoers as well as hosting six festival performances in the hotel itself and probably a few impromptu late night jams.
Supported by the Musicians Union

The Jazz festival does not operate to make a profit, and we rely heavily on the people who volunteer to help. If you would like to volunteer to help at this year’s festival, please get in touch.
