JazzLeeds Festival 2018

JazzLeeds Festival - 19-24 July 2018

About JazzLeeds Festival 2018

The second JazzLeeds 2018  – our most sucessful yet!

We grew from that one day in Millennium Square in 2017 to six days this year in July 2018 at the Wardrobe, Leeds College of Music and a festival fringe of two days in Millennium Square. 

We’ve been featuring international stars as well as some of the musicians – and stories – from this great city of Leeds.

JazzLeeds is a new jazz charity organisation in the city, passionately run by volunteers. We started off ten years ago as Seven Jazz in Chapel Allerton but our desire for the city to have a proper growing jazz festival has encouraged us to spread our wings. Next year (July 18-23 2019) we want to be bigger, better and more international!
