Castlemaine Jazz Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

7 Jun 2019 to 10 Jun 2019

Castlemaine will be hosting their sixth annual Jazz Festival over the Queen’s Birthday weekend. This year’s Festival features more than fifty outstanding bands and around 300 highly talented musicians. Held across five unique central Castlemaine venues, with a full programme starting from the Friday evening and going through until Monday afternoon, the festival will be celebrating a broad range of jazz styles and performers from across the region and beyond.

2019 Jazz Festival highlights include:

‘The Seven Ups’ – the original seven-piece party band from Melbourne, blending influences from 1970s Nigerian Afrobeat with the deepest of street funk.

‘Low Down Big Band’ – an 18 piece Melbourne-borne big band will be playing a balanced mix of Trad, Blues, Funk, New Orleans, and Contemporary styles. Expect high intensity, hard- swinging, funk-filled fun.

The original and electrifying fusion quartet ‘Jungle Fusion’ – with their deep ethno roots and avant-garde philosophy you can expect a wild and eclectic show. Think Jimi Hendrix meets Miles Davis.

‘The Goldfields Jazz Orchestra’ with Meg Corson will be bringing an unforgettable experience. These highly talented musicians, a collaboration by instrument musicians from across the region debuted at the 2018 festival and were a smash hit.
