Festival Description

The Cape Town Jazzathon is the most successful free festival to date. Local musicians and emerging artists are given a platform to express their talents—especially those from previously disadvantaged sectors of the community. African artists are given the opportunity to interact with national and international artists. Through interaction reconciliation, non-radicalism and a common nationhood is promoted through music. The Jazzathon contributes to the growth of arts and cultural tourism in South Africa and draws an estimated 700,000 vistors to the area.

Festival Dates January 7 - 10, 2010 postponed
