EFG London Jazz Festival

10 Nov 2016 - 19 Nov 2016

The EFG London Jazz Festival is renowned for showcasing an eclectic mix of talented musicians from around the world.

One of the UK’s landmark musical celebrations, the festival has long been acclaimed for its bold programmes featuring world-class artists and emerging stars, tailored to delight both fans and new audiences.

This year, the Royal Festival Hall stage welcomes Abdullah Ibrahim and Hugh Masekela, who revisit their days as The Jazz Epistles in 1950s South Africa; Marcus Miller, who is here with a new project; and the contagiously funky Average White Band. There is also a wealth of emerging British stars and new music to be heard.
