2024 National Youth Jazz Festival

The National Youth Jazz Festival is a programme dedicated to jazz music and development. With a legacy that dates back to 1992, the Festival has helped shape the careers of numerous jazz musicians. It is an annual highlight for budding jazz musos, who come to Makhanda to immerse themselves in music and meet their artistic heroes who are living and defining the genre. The programme is active and experiential and sees artists jamming with the students.
