Ballydehob Jazz Festival is 10 years old and celebrating in style! Since its inception, the festival’s programme has grown in standard and stature and every May Bank Holiday Weekend, the West Cork Village has hosted a string of extraordinary musicians and eclectic events. This year, the festival is launching its most ambitious programme to date, which will secure Ballydehob’s place on Ireland’s music festival calendar.

The 2016 Ballydehob Jazz Festival will run over four days — Friday, April 29 to Monday, May 2 — and includes two International headliner acts (Lake Street Dive and Meschiya Lake and The Lil Big Horns), a free Jazz Trail with over 40 performances throughout the village, a New Orleans Funeral Parade, an Artisan Food and Craft Market, a full weekend of Jazz Dance Work Shops, all leading up to a swinging Moonshine Party on the final night.

This festival is run entirely by volunteers, a mad bunch of music lovers and festival buffs who share a vision to promote the arts and bring people to the remarkable and unique corner of the world that is Ballydehob, West Cork.

Tickets available online at ballydehobjazzfestival.org.
