Come in and relax… for ten days, the Jazz & Blues Festival musical talent in all shapes and sizes. Whether you’re a Festival regular or first-timer, this year’s programme offers styles for all tastes – from bop to boogie-woogie to blues-rock; from samba to swing to soul.

Jazz legends and international acts line up with homegrown talent and rising stars. Check out your favourite acts, of course, but we encourage you to get in the spirit of the Festival and try something new – you’re likely to discover a hidden gem! Experimental guitarists, funky swing bands, soulful singers shine from every corner of the line-up.

And let yourself be transported by another Festival star – our venues! Dance under the magic mirrors of a grandiose cabaret Spiegeltent, enjoy the sumptious surroundings and acoustics of the Fetival Theatre, get an intense listening experience in our new music studio, or finger-snap through a gig in a Gallery with a panaromaic view of Edinburgh.

10 days, 10 venues, over 160 concerts – your Festival season starts right here!
