18th - 19th October

Those who've felt the buzz of York on a busy jazz festival weekend will know exactly what we are talking about; the gorgeous and 'just-right' 75 minute drive in the sunshine through a countryside bursting with spring wildflowers lands you in the proud historic town of York and you are immediately immersed in an authentic and delightful experience. The unmistakable atmosphere of heritage and pioneer spirit in the buildings and the streets of York is completely energized with all things jazz and the air is a delightful jumble of incredible music, the smell of gourmet food and the chatter and hum of happy people.

This is what York Jazz Festival was always about and from October 2008 this is the least you can expect as we proudly present a completely revitalized 21st Annual YORK JAZZ & SOUL FESTIVAL.

An agreement with the Shire of York sees control of the event being handed to Western Australian based festival and event maestros Supersonic Enterprises from 2008 (see footer).

This gives the festival the injection of creative direction, experience, resources and new investment of $500,000 from Supersonic which will enable the delivery of a premium WA experience for world class artists and jazz fans alike. The event is also picking the brains of WA's potent jazz and music community through organizations such as JazzWA, Perth Jazz Society, Jazz Club of WA and Funk Club to ensure we identify and secure the best possible combination of local, national and international jazz and soul artists for the event.
