Cheltenham Jazz Festival

Cheltenham has become one of the country’s best-loved jazz festivals, home to over 20,000 music fans. 

 

We love to celebrate all genres of jazz and carefully curate a mixture of international jazz icons, up-and-coming new artists and unique Festival performances to ensure the programme has something for everyone and we continue to bring jazz to new audiences. This approach has seen us host some of the world’s greatest musicians. 

What’s on

Previous guests include Gregory Porter (who is now an Artistic curator of the Festival), Randy Crawford, Nubya Garcia, Kamasi Washington, Courtney Pine, Katie Melua, Paloma Faith, Hugh Laurie, Laura Mvula, Eartha Kitt, Caro Emerald, Corinne Bailey Rae, Imelda May, Soweto Kinch, Van Morrison, Yazz Ahmed, Kansas Smitty’s, Stephane Grappelli, Chick Corea, Jamie Cullum, Joshua Redman and Ornette Coleman.

Keep your eyes peeled for the 2024 line-up.
