Running since 1985, Birmingham, Sandwell & Westside Jazz Festival is England’s longest-established jazz and blues festival and one of Europe’s biggest free jazz parties.


The festival regularly presents more than 200 performances alongside workshops, talks, exhibitions and masterclasses, and almost all of it is free to attend. Performances take place in shopping centres, streets and squares, bars, restaurants, clubs, hotels, art galleries, markets, libraries, parks, railway stations, canal boats, and sometimes even on buses and trains!


The Festival is organised by Big Bear Music, probably the UK’s longest running independent record label and booking agency.
