Manly Jazz

2016 Manly Jazz

The thirty-ninth annual Manly Jazz will be held over the October long weekend and surrounding dates with performances in multiple indoor and outdoor venues including major stages alongside Manly’s 2.4 kilometre (1.5-mile) Pacific surf beach.

The internationally acclaimed Manly Jazz is known worldwide for its beautiful location and the diversity of music it presents, from traditional New Orleans jazz to funk, Latin, fusion, blues, gospel, swing and roots.

In 2015, over 100,000 music lovers flocked to Manly Beach to hear artists such as ARIA award winning group The Idea of North, the talentet Darren Percival, Japanese jazz singer Charito, and the a special concert with James Morrison and Jeff Clayton, plus many more great local and international acts.

Manly Jazz is first and foremost a music festival - a real celebration of sound. But it is also a celebration of Australia’s beach culture, good food, great times and especially the wonderful Manly vibe. What better place to do so than right here at our beautiful beachfront?
