Celebrating the best of BOP jazz across the decades.

60th Anniversary Gala

From the jazz pioneer days of 1960s, we honour legacy artists through to more recent arrivals.

Take a step back in time as you enjoy a parade of artists who have featured at the National Jazz Festival over the decades – musicians who have lit the stages and flown the flag for BOP jazz and blues.

Be blown away by a cavalcade of BOP jazz artists in a variety-show format. Music to keep your head nodding and stories to keep your memories jogging.

Expect a few surprise guests!
