About the 2016 festival

The 2016 Margate Jazz Festival is to be held across a number of venues in Margate during the weekend of the 23rd, 24th and 25th of September. It will be the 11th staging of the event.

Founded by David Mossman, who also cofounded the famous Vortex jazz club in London’s Dalston, previous Margate Jazz Festivals have featured great names from the contemporary jazz scene both here and abroad including Christine Tobin, Courtney Pine, Evan Parker, John Etheridge, Emilia Martensson, Carol Grimes, Ian Shaw, Juan Perez Rodriguez, Michael J McEvoy, Monica Vasconcelos, Annie Whitehead, Jim Mullen, Paul Booth, Phil Robson, Henry Lowther and Steve Waterman to mention just a few.

At this year’s Parliamentary Jazz Awards, 2015 Margate Jazz Festival headliner Emilia Martensson was awarded Jazz Vocalist of the Year and 2014 headliner Evan Parker received a special award for his contribution to jazz.

We promise this year’s festival will offer another great line-up. We have already announced some acts, and will be adding more.  Tickets are now on sale.
