The Perth International Jazz Festival makes its much-anticipated return with local and international jazz artists, from Friday 9, Saturday 10 & Sunday 11 November 2018.
Presenting an array of incredible jazz performances in numerous venues across the city, the three-day Festival will feature a blend of ticketed and free community events. Showcasing a host of celebrated local, national and international artists, this year’s Jazz program offers something for everyone.
With over 35 Jazz festivals across Australia, PIJF is the only dedicated international Jazz festival in Western Australia. The Festival’s aim is to bring inspiring music by many talented musicians to Perth in an accessible and vibrant way.
Come and be seduced by the language of Jazz: sometimes intimate, often boisterous, layered with experience and life profoundly lived – it’s found in the act of creating the form itself.
This year the Perth International Jazz Festival is moving to November 9th – 11th. We feel this is a better time of year to celebrate Perth’s exquisite climate, to celebrate the end of the year and to be able to utilise other national jazz festival networks.
This year is our sixth year and we want to carry on the legacy of what Graham Wood started, and make it bigger and better for our great city.
We are asking you, our audience and our supporters, to help us expand on the visiting guest artist program which will allow us to access more artists to bring to you!
We are aiming to raise $20,000 to bring a greater variety of national and international artists to this festival. It is a great undertaking to bring artists to this fair isolated city of ours, but with every donation it makes our job easier to create the very best festival that this city deserves.
Every tax deductible donation will go directly to the artist fund. This will help pay for the artists fees, flights and accommodation. This is the core of the festivals success and longevity and we need you, as our audience and supporters, to work with us to build this festival to something greater than it has already been.
As donations and support comes in over the next few months we will be able to secure artists and announce them. You can follow our progress, from your support at

We appreciate your support and thank you for helping us make this festival a success for YOU!
