Soweto International Jazz Festival

Jazz fans of all ages should get ready for the inaugural Soweto International Jazz Festival taking place at the Soweto Theatre in Soweto, Johannesburg, from 14 to 17 June 2018.

This event will be taking over the entire theatre compound over four days, with indoor and outdoor stages to be charged with energising performances by some of the biggest musicians from the Caribbean, the US and Africa as part of the festival mission to attract pan-African, North American and Caribbean tourism. 

The festival will not only be a musical extravaganza, but also serve as the springboard to launch a mentoring programme for young people interested in the live-entertainment business. Day two will be dedicated to women, including workshops, panels and information exchange programmes.

Day three will shine the spotlight on the amazing talent scheduled to perform on both stages, as well as panels and artist interviews, while the final day will be dedicated to the awesome sounds of jazz, gospel and much more. The line-up includes Spyro Gyra, Charlie Wilson, the Soweto Gospel Choir, Lady Zamar, Deborah Cox, Mi Casa, Ernie Smith and a whole host more! 

One-day ticket prices range from R450 (general) to R1 000 (VIP).
