The Muizenberg Jazz Festival 2018 will take place on 16 and 17 November 2018 at the Masque Theatre in Muizenberg, Cape Town.
After a successful inaugural event in 2017 validated by sponsors, media partners, audiences and most importantly by the artists themselves, the Muizenberg Jazz Festival grown in size, to a bigger more memorable experience.
Tucked in between iconic Surfers Corner and Muizenberg mountain peak, the Masque Theatre’s proximity to main roads, highways, and public transport makes world-class entertainment easily accessible to all people coming from anywhere and by any means.
The lineup this year will feature ten jazz acts again, each performing an hour long set over the course of the two evenings of the festival, as well as a photographic exhibition in the foyer of the theatre.
The festival offers diverse jazz genres such as contemporary jazz, African jazz, fusion jazz and world jazz as well as two big band performances.
The lineup includes performances by Tucan Tucan, Ivan Mazuze (pictured above), Darren English and The Lady Day Big Band, to mention a few.
The festival vision lies in three main criteria: to provide a place for the artist and art form to thrive, to thoroughly entertain audiences, and to leave the surrounding community and audience enlightened, engaged and enriched.
Three workshops organized by SAJE (South African Association for Jazz Education) and CTBBJF (Cape Town Big Band Jazz Festival) will take place on Saturday 17 November in the morning at the Masque Theatre’s auditorium from 11am to 3pm.
