Festival Description

Swanage is filled with the varied sounds of jazz where one can stroll between venues presenting New Orleans, Dixieland, swing, mainstream, bebop, postbop and contemporary styles. Of course you may want to stick with your favourite style, in which case you can almost certainly find a band to suit your taste any time between late morning and midnight. Our policy is to book as many young bands as we can in every style, within a balanced programme.

Festival Dates July 12 - 14, 2013
