Fri 18 Oct 2024 to Sun 27 Oct 2024

Melbourne International Jazz Festival (MIJF) returns this October 18-27, featuring international stars and incredible Australian artists for 10 huge days of live music. 

To kick things off, living legend Herbie Hancock (pictured) is set to light up the Sidney Myer Music Bowl stage with an electrifying evening of music for Jazz at the Bowl. With a career spanning seven decades and a staggering 14 GRAMMY awards, few artists have had more influence on modern music than Herbie Hancock. The creative force behind timeless classics like Cantaloupe Island, Chameleon, and Rockit, Hancock's genre-transcending appeal and unmistakable style have cemented his status as "today’s greatest living artist," as extolled by The Washington Post. 

Joined on the line up by the incomparable Marcus Miller and local soul superstar Bumpy, this rare convergence of musical titans—a hallmark of the always-anticipated Jazz at the Bowl—promises a night of history-making performances not to be missed. 

Now in its third year, Jazz at the Bowl has firmly established itself as a truly unique festival-only experience. This year raises the bar yet again, providing audiences with a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the legendary Herbie Hancock live—under the stars—at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

Melbourne International Jazz Festival’s full 2024 program will be announced in August.
