When Jazz becomes street music.

Summer is not here yet, but the heat is rising in Wellington from the start of June. The highlight of the New Zealand musical season, the Wellington Jazz Festival make the capital move to the hot sound of the brass instruments and the sensual vibratos of the singers. In the high places of the city and the streets, national and international artists flock, joined by an ever increasing audience (over 30,000 spectators in 2017). It is as though, for a week, the Aotearoa capital had become the global capital of Jazz music.

From Wednesday 6 to Sunday 10 June 2018 :
- From Wednesday to Sunday doors open at 12:00
Concerts will be offered in several venues in the city. Full programme and bookings on the festival's website or via email.
