Details

One of the most successful Brazilian artists of all time, bossa nova legend Sergio Mendes has had an influence on the music industry which spans five decades, three Grammy awards and an Oscar nomination. With a sound that combines Brazilian rhythms with jazz, pop, soul and funk, his music is instantly recognisable, including his 1966 hit Mas Que Nada, which topped the charts again forty years later in collaboration with the Black Eyed Peas.

With countless career highlights, there’s barely space to mention performing twice in the White House for Presidents Nixon and Reagan, touring with Frank Sinatra, producing records for Gilberto Gil and Sarah Vaughn, and being inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. He has defined Brazilian music for audiences around the world and now makes a rare return to the UK for just a handful of shows.

Venue

Henry Westons Big Top

The Henry Westons Big Top is a purpose built venue situated at the heart of Jazz in the Gardens. Constructed in the classic style of a circus big top, the arena is fully lined and offers tiered seating. High quality sound and lighting production enhance the Festival experience inside this atmospheric jazz venue. Each year, the Big Top and Jazz Arena venues play host to a vast array of acclaimed headliners and rising stars throughout the Cheltenham Jazz Festival.

Building on the success of last year’s Festival, the Henry Westons Big Top capacity will increase by 50% to 2,000 seats in 2019, enabling more people to enjoy the most popular events and offering better sightlines to the stage.
