JazzLeeds Festival 2018

JazzLeeds Festival - 19-24 July 2018

About JazzLeeds Festival 2018

The second JazzLeeds 2018  festival is a bit bigger than the first!

We’ve grown from that one day in Millennium Square in 2017 to five days this year at the Wardrobe, Leeds College of Music and a festival fringe of two days in Millennium Square. 

We’re featuring international stars but also some of the musicians – and stories – from this great city of Leeds.

Who are we? We’re JazzLeeds – a new jazz charity organisation in the city, passionately run by volunteers. We started off ten years ago in Chapel Allerton but now we want the city to have a proper growing jazz festival, so that by 2023, the big Leeds Cultural Celebration we will be bigger, better and more international!
