City of Derry Jazz and Big Band Festival
1 – 5 May 2014
Undoubtedly one of our calendar events for 11 years now, the City of Derry Jazz and Big Band Festival is always legendary as it sweeps a frenzied fever for tantalising tunes across the city. Over 35,000 music lovers will take to the streets in pursuit of the perfect medley of music at this year’s festival, which will feature over 70 venues and over 200 musicians.
This May we will also welcome some new faces including renowned English folk singer Kate Rusby who will be appearing at the Millenium Forum and this venue will also host The Jersey boys “The Frankie Valli story” over the weekend while festival favorites the Jive Aces, Carmen Ghia and the Hotrods, Greggi G and his crazy gang will all be returning. With a range of venues across the city featuring live music the possibilities are endless and open to everyone; from party people to families with young children, pure Jazz Fans to live music enthusiasts, the only problem will be deciding who to see first!
