About around town...

The wait is nearly over, the highly anticipated Cheltenham Jazz Festival ...around town programme is back and applications to take part in an internationally renowned jazz festival are now open.

We're searching for musicians to participate in events all over the town as part of Cheltenham Jazz Festival 2024 (1 - 6 May). With a range of opportunities from pop-up performances to formal stages, we're looking for acoustic singer-songwriters, to full blown bands, dancers, artists and street performers to take part.

The …around town programme, thanks to the support of Cheltenham BID, aims to fill the town centre with free music and in 2023 more than 100 performances took place across the town and Festival site. 

Participating in the ...around town programme provides you with a fantastic platform to showcase your work and is a great way to get yourself noticed – jazz artists, agents and promoters are around morning and night taking in the jazz vibe over the Festival period.

If you're interested in performing at Cheltenham Jazz Festival 2024, applications are now open until Tuesday 12 December 2023.
