We were delighted to have presented the first Sidmouth International Jazz and Blues Festival from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June 2022.

The festival was hugely well received and was attended by 10,000 visitors that travelled from as far as London and from across the Southwest. 

Music fans and families enjoyed the dynamic free music programme of events on our outdoor performance stage where we presented and showcased some amazing musicians and bands from across the region. 

The 2022 programme included ticketed headline concerts in the stunning setting of Sidmouth Parish church, featuring acclaimed and respected artistes from the world of Jazz and Blues. A range of  free music also took place at various fringe venues including hotels, restaurants, and pubs.

Our plan and vision is to continue to bring wellbeing through the power of music; an artistic programme of quality, diversity and inclusivity that will engage the wider community, enhance tourism and provide economic and cultural benefits to the beautiful town of Sidmouth, Devon and the Southwest region. 

From Small Beginnings Come Great Things

Our clear vision is to continue to build the festival organically by raising the bar higher each year to including new and exciting events that appeal to a wide cross section of the public, music lovers and families.

We are a boutique festival by design and our ethos is quality over quantity presenting the very best in Jazz, Blues, Roots, Soul, Latin, Funk and much more!

Corporate Sponsors & Patrons 

As a festival, we are committed to developing mutually beneficial partnerships with local and regional corporate business partners and patrons.  

Private patronage and corporate sponsorship packages  are available for both individuals and businesses.

We invite you to support the festival and in return benefit from high profile branding opportunities and outstanding client hospitality.

We would be delighted to hear from local and regional musicians who would like the opportunity and platform to perform as part of the festival.

The festival is also looking for additional volunteers to join the team  and be an integral part of our exciting annual festival in Sidmouth.
