Newport Jazz Festival Australia is run by Melbourne Jazz Jammers Inc.

The 2024 Newport Festival

We saved the best 'til last!

And quite a Sunday it was: the Library packed for Bob Sedergreen and Friends, some seriously good jazz all day, and Sarah MacClaine wrapping up the Festival in tremendous style


This year saw the biggest crowds we have had, some remarkable performances  - Shirazz starred on Friday, Julie O'Hara and Adam Rudegeair's trio played to packed houses, as did the Navy Jazz Band; all supported by standout performances from (in no particular order!) Anita Harris, Roger Clark, Nadira (Hobart), Leena Salim (Brisbane), The Romans, Ron Anderson, the Lee Jones Trio, Sala's Jazz Salad, Snazz Jazz, Big Band Frequency, Melba, Aneta Graham and Friends, Yuko Onishi with Ben Hooper, Hijaz Dreams, the editor's personal favourite band who shall remain nameless, .....and enough class to suggest that we should keep this up...

Which we will...

So.... 2nd May to 4th May 2025 - you read it here first.
