The first Manly Jazz was held in 1977, with many volunteers joining the management team to help manage and organise the event. Interested individuals are always welcome to participate in this event, as it promotes all forms of jazz music. Novice jazz bands and musicians are always welcome to participate and showcase their talents.
Each year, the festival celebrates the icons of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong with performances honouring legends of the Jazz music scene.
There will be many performances scheduled, with several free events. Come along and get your fill of jazz, funk, Latin, fusion, blues, gospel, swing and roots.
The Manly Corso and surrounding streets and laneways will come alive with music and draw in thousands this year. Over three days and four stages, visitors will enjoy jazz and other great music from over 70 artists.
This year’s program also features an in-venue lineup, so visitors can eat, drink and relax to tunes while enjoying food and drinks from local bars and restaurants.
