The 37th annual Glasgow Jazz Festival is set to return from Wednesday 14th – Sunday 18th June 2023 with multiple music events taking place each day across city centre venues. Stay tuned for the full line up which will be announced soon.
Last year’s festival showcased 24 events with 5 sold-out shows and over 1,500 attendees enjoying performances from some of the biggest names in jazz, blues, soul, funk, R&B and world music.
Our Late Night Jam Sessions will run from 11pm-3am over the 5 nights of our festival. They are free to attend and have seen some legendary performances throughout our history with acts across the programme often participating after their main shows.
In recent years they have attracted young and diverse audiences which often reach capacity. Featuring a House Band each night, they provide work for local musicians and create a space where they can improvise and collaborate with other artists. Since our previous venue has closed down, we are seeking funding to move to a new venue, with our project part of the 2023 Creative Scotland Crowdmatch competition. Creative Scotland will match individual pledges from the crowd up to £10,000. So if you donate £20 to our cause, your donation will be matched with a £20 pledge from Creative Scotland, effectively doubling your donation!
The Crowdfunder is now live and there will be a range of rewards available over the next 4 weeks including limited ticket deals so please check back regularly and follow us on social media for updates.
