Thank you for your interest in performing at the Wellington Jazz Festival.

This year’s Festival will be held 9 – 13 June 2021.


The Festival’s Headliner Programme is curated by our Creative Director Marnie Karmelita and Director Ngā Toi Māori Mere Boynton and in 2021 will feature a range of Aotearoa musicians and at least one new commission.


Musicians and venues are also invited to host their own Wellington Jazz Festival events as part of the Full Line-up. Events in the Full Line-up will be promoted through the Wellington Jazz Festival marketing and media channels alongside our Headliner Programme. Registrations for the Full Line-up are open now and close on Tuesday 16 March 2021.
