The prestigious Eltham Jazz, Food & Wine Festival returns on the weekend of 22nd and 23rd February with an exciting lineup of the best established and up-and-coming jazz, blues, swing and soul acts.
This popular FREE, family-friendly extravaganza is a landmark musical event within Melbourne's 'Green Wedge', and was ranked second in American Express Essentials' 'The World's Top 20 Jazz Festivals'.
Set in the heart of Eltham, this year's festival offers its biggest lineup to date, with The Lachy Doley Group, Kylie Auldist, and Claude Hay among the artists gracing three stages over the weekend.
The 2020 Festival recognises the transcendent nature of jazz across genres, cultures, and languages. Old and new jazz fans alike will be transfixed by the diverse array of talent on offer, including performances from San Lazaro, Iaki Vallejo, Alárìíyá, Headphones Jones and Lamine Sonko & The African Intelligence who will bring Afrobeat and Latin grooves to the Festival.
Complementing the great entertainment lineup is a mouth-watering selection of delicious gourmet foods and locally produced wine and beer. The kids aren't left out either with free children's activities, including face painting, a jumping castle and craft activities from 12pm to 6pm on both days.
The Eltham Jazz, Food & Wine Festival is one of the state's biggest events! Round up your friends and family, and soak up the laid back vibes and enjoy music that makes your soul dance.
