Jive to some upbeat jazz or cruise to some very cool crooning at this year's Melbourne International Jazz Festival.

It's on from the 1st to the 8th of May and promises to explore the groovy gamut of one of the world's most-loved musical art forms.

A jam-packed program for young and old kicks off this Saturday with a bunch of both free and ticketed events around town. You can catch the iconic James Morrison, Play School's Big Jazz Adventure with the kids, and maybe the free concert at Federation Square. Click here for all the fabulous details.

I'm always struck by the amount of free stuff we have access to in Melbourne. While some of the bigger name acts are ticketed events, there's plenty for those on a tighter budget to enjoy. Maybe listen to some fascination conversations or catch an ensemble, the piano staircase, jazz jams, some art, concerts and more. There's really no excuse for not making the most of it – 'cos they're completely free.

The festival comprises 400 artists performing in 95 different events. With 16 world premiers and 21 Australian premiers, it promises to be a festival to remember.

Events take place in some of Melbourne's most iconic spaces, as well as clubs, bars and on city streets. For easy public transport directions to the various locations, click here.
