42nd Merimbula Jazz Festival (7-10 June 2024)

We're looking forward to seeing you at the 42nd in '24!


Welcome to the online home of the Merimbula Jazz Festival where preparations for the 2024 Festival - it's our 42nd - have already started.

Check out our new poster for 2024 - if you look closely you might even see yourself because the entire image is composed of faces from previous festivals, thanks to our clever designer Jess at InHouse Pixels.

Musicians love to come together in our beautiful town to play jazz, but also they also come to catch up with long-term friends, meet new ones and encourage the musicians of tomorrow.

If you want to experience the pleasure of playing and/or listening to some wonderfully talented jazz musicians of all ages, put June 7-10, 2024 in your diary. As well, you get the added bonus of enjoying everything the wonderfully wild Sapphire Coast has to offer in terms of natural beauty and fine food - did someone mention award-winning oysters and spirits?

We will be opening registration in early December for both our Musicians and our Jazz Lovers and for the first time, registration for Musicians and Band Leaders as well as ticketing for Jazz Lovers, will all be online.

New - vocal workshops

If you’ve ever thought how wonderful it might be to sing as part of a gospel choir or in front of a big band - this is the chance you have been waiting for and beginners are welcome.

This year we are so excited to be offering two vocal workshops as part of the Merimbula Jazz Festival. Each comes with the opportunity to perform as part of the festival program with a large vocal group.

Stay tuned or better still sign up for our newsletters and get all the news delivered straight to your inbox.

We very much look forward to seeing you all in paradise for the 42nd Festival
