JAZZ RE:FEST is a family-friendly, annual one-day festival, produced by music and arts organisation Jazz re:freshed, celebrating jazz and jazz-inspired music and culture.
After a fantastic festival in 2018 and now in its seventh year, JAZZ RE:FEST returns to Brighton with over 50 DJs and musicians to showcase the incredibly diverse, colourful, expressive and creative world of jazz music and alternative culture.
Jazz re:freshed’s mission is to globally elevate, amplify and spotlight the breadth of expression in UK Jazz, while breaking down the boundaries to access the music as a listener. Synonymous with supporting the launch of Ashley Henry and Nubya Garcia’s recording careers, tastemakers, Jazz re:freshed have achieve their aims by supporting, developing and promoting emerging artists and bands across multiple platforms including a weekly live residency, annual one day festival, record label, band development programs, international showcasing and multiple partnerships.
JAZZ RE:FEST gives a platform to some of the dopest live music around, especially showcasing emerging and underexposed talent – this year will be no exception, with a mammoth line-up including: Theon Cross // Zara McFarlane // Rosie Turton // Kevin Haynes Grupo Elegua // Sarah Tandy // Werkha // Camilla George.
In addition to the live bands, there will be a selection of exquisite DJs, playing music that connects the dots between jazz and other genres. Already announced are: Steve Austin // Mikey Futuristic // Kate Magic // Busyfingers // Chanty74 // Mickey Duke (1BTN) // Tony Supreme.
