Leeds Jazz Festival returns in 2023

Leeds Jazz Festival returns for it’s second year from 25 - 20 May 2023. The event aims to unite and celebrate the musicians, venues, promoters, audiences and organisations who are part of the Leeds Jazz tapestry - whilst showcasing the best of local, national and international music.

The inaugural event took place between 1st and 12th June 2022. The programme featured a variety of free to access events and ticketed showcases, representing the wide diversity of Jazz in the city, with something for everyone, from the most die-hard jazz fan around to a first time attendee. You can check out the gallery and events listings to get a sense for the 2022 festival.

The festival is produced by a city-wide network of partners, representing venues, programmers, musicians and more, coordinated by Music:Leeds and supported by Split Design, arts@leeds, Leeds City Council, Leeds BID, Leeds 2023 and bcausam.

With 2022’s festival under wraps, you can stay updated through our social media and we’ll see you in May 2023 for more fantastic events in the second city of jazz in the UK.
