Background

Liverpool International Jazz Festival was established in 2013 by Liverpool Hope University and in previous years has included performances from some of Jazz music’s leading lights – artists such as Courtney Pine, Denys Baptiste, Roller Trio, Impossible Gentlemen, Kit Downes, Led Bib, Andy Sheppard, Philip Catherine, GoGo Penguin, Troyka, Neil Cowley Trio and Dennis Rollins’ Velocity Trio.

The Sixth Liverpool International Jazz Festival (LIJF) will take place from Thursday 22nd to Sunday 25th February 2018. Supported by sponsors and collaborators that include LiverpoolJazz, Milapfest, The Anti-Social Jazz Club, Curly Music, Trevor James and Jazz North, the most recent incarnation of the festival looks to be as dynamic and forward thinking as ever.

The emphasis as ever is on contemporary instrumental jazz in a variety of styles taking audience members on a musical journey that traverses numerous genres and cross-genres including Funk/Acid Jazz, IndoJazz and Jazz Rock.  Along the way, there are support sets from North West artists, masterclasses and workshops from Festival performers and after-events organised by the Anti-Social Jazz Club in Liverpool City Centre. You can find fuller details about the Festival including after-events as they unfold here at this web site.
