Music lovers, listen up! It is happening this month in Cape Town: the must-visit Cape Town International Jazz festival. For 16 years, every last week of March, the Mother City has been welcoming locals and international Jazz artists in a groovy spirit for an exceptional musical week.
Taking place in the Cape Town Convention Centre during the last weekend of March, ‘’Africa’s grandest gathering’’ was made to feature Jazz music. It has now become a great event of sharing, with a unique and entertaining show. The week of the festival is the opportunity for the city to enhance Jazz and music knowledge through different workshops and free concerts downtown.
Artists, which are fifty-fifty locals and internationals, share their passion for music on five different stages with a public that has doubled since the first CTIJF. Being one of the top Jazz festivals in the world, the event welcomes the most renowned artists such as Grammy nominated singer and songwriter Amel Larrieux.
Not necessarily into Jazz music? More of a trance, rock, or electronic music fan? No worries, Southern Africa has it covered for you. Inspirational and creative, the region welcomes a great number of festivals, featuring not only music but also entertaining shows, in splendid landscapes. The real treasures of African festivals remain in a few simple things: exceptional and natural venues, great performances, and chilled vibes. Have a look at our events calendar to decide when you will be coming!
This year, the Cape Town International Jazz Festival will take place from Friday 27th of March to Sunday 29th.
