The Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues is back with a line up that is sure to hit all the high notes!

Off the back of a hugely successful 2016 program, the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues is preparing to welcome back jazz cats, blues enthusiasts and music lovers to jitterbug and jive for another stellar festival in 2017.

Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues was originally conceived by a group of locals in 1989 as a way to attract visitors and put Wangaratta ‘on the map’. The first Festival was held in 1990. Now in its 28th year, the Festival has grown to become an internationally renowned event, attracting around 20,000 visitors each year and more than 300 Jazz and Blues artists from the USA, Europe, Asia and Australia.

The 2017 line-up features a stellar collection of artists including Christian Scott, Jon Cleary, Ian Moss, The Others, Katie Noonan and more. The Wangaratta Festival of Jazz & Blues is the perfect opportunity to unwind and enjoy a jam-packed long weekend of premium jazz and blues from a stellar line-up of Australian and international musicians.

Held over the ‘unofficial’ Melbourne Cup Day weekend – Friday 3 November to Sunday 5 November, festival goers will be treated to the musical delights of more than 300 musicians in over 80 concerts, across eight concert locations.
