In the summer of 2017, the Leeds Jazz Festival began with a one-off, pop-up event in Leeds’ Millennium Square. Fast forward two short years, and the festival, due to take place between 18th and 21st July this summer, has become a major four-day event, attracting thousands of attendees, with a week-long, build-up fringe festival. There’s set to be over 30 performances from established, jazz greats, to emerging male and female talent. What’s more, the festival has received funding from Arts Council England – cementing the fact that jazz isn’t a niche music genre for people of a certain age, but a scene that touches all ages, genders and communities.
The Leeds jazz scene is always amazing with an ever-changing list of venues and bands. Jazz clubs pop up (and some unfortunately pop down again) so frequently it is hard to keep up. The best places are sometimes out of the town centre but there are now many venues in the city centre too. So here’s (some) of what’s happening – why not visit them all!
