Year round, you can enjoy plenty of great jazz shows in Sydney if you are visiting the city, and of course, Sydney also has numerous other venues offering rock, blues and acoustic music. Throughout the calendar year, several music festivals and events also feature a line up of well known artists, although two festivals are a must for jazz lovers. The Winter Blues and Jazz festival is held in the city in July, and the one day event also features a variety of food and locally made gifts for sale, as well as some of the country’s up and coming jazz musicians. In recent years, another jazz festival has become a fixture in the city’s calendar, the International Women’s Jazz festival. This takes place over 10 days in November, and is a great chance to enjoy many leading female jazz musicians.
