How to Register

We’re working with Humanitix to make registrations and buying tickets for the Merimbula Jazz Festival easier. Tickets for Jazz Lovers will also be available at the Jazz Office on your arrival at the Festival (card payments only).

While you are on the website, take a moment to sign up to our email list and we will keep you informed with any updates.

Bands and Musicians must register before 18th March

There is no fee for bands but band leaders and all members must be fully registered (with payment).
There is a limited number of spots available, and entries received after the closing date cannot be accepted.
Unregistered musicians will not appear in the program book and will not be eligible for a disbursement.


Musicians are responsible for the storage and safe keeping of their instruments at all times. The Merimbula Jazz Festival Inc. is not liable for loss or damage to any musical instrument during the Festival.

Planning your first visit/performance?

Please note that we do not pay bands to play. Nor do we pay for travel and accommodation. Bands register for free, musicians pay a small registration fee and in return we provide some food/drink vouchers. A small disbursement is paid back to the musicians who performed if the festival makes a profit.
