Joy of Jazz


The Standard Bank Joy of Jazz will be attracting an expected crowd of around 20 000 people to several venues around Johannesburg’s Newtown Cultural Precinct.

The festival showcases over 200 top local and international talent, and Joy of Jazz has facilitated collaborations and cultural exchanges. Importantly, Joy of Jazz has also seen a phenomenal growth in the number of developing jazz artists who have been given exposure and a platform on which to perform.

Joy of Jazz has played an integral part in the regeneration of the inner city, helping to shape the future of Johannesburg and contributing to the city's changing creative and cultural landscape.
