This proudly South African produced event is hosted at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in downtown, Cape Town each year. It happens on either the last weekend of March or the first weekend of April each year. Next year, in 2019, the event will happen over the weekend of Friday the 29th of March and Saturday the 30th of March.
The festival boasts 5 stages, including the famous Rosies stage for serious jazz acts. The programming, which is unique to the The Cape Town International Jazz Festival, is made up of a 50/50 split between South African artists and international artists respectively. Some stages are indoors and some outdoors. Food, beverage and VIP hospitality is available to patrons. Doors on the Friday normally open at 6pm and the show ends around midnight. On the Saturday, doors open earlier at 4:30pm and also ends around midnight. The festival hosts in excess of 37 000 music lovers over the 2 show days. It is a real who's who of South Africa and is probably the greatest example of a cross cultural event in Africa, maybe the world? From international celebrties, to the local man and woman in the street, the love of jazz and music in general brings humanity together under one roof, for one reason: To celebrate the joy of jazz. The Cape Town International Jazz Festival plays an important role in preserving the cultural diversity of the Mother City and is one of Cape Town's most popular events.
