Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Thursday 2nd-Sunday 5th January 2020
The Nelson Jazz Festival is back for 2020 with four days of jazz and blues gigs around Nelson and Tasman!
The diversity of acts in the line-up offers something for everyone. The festival continues in its familiar format, bookended by family-friendly Twilight Picnic Concerts, kicking off at Washbourn Gardens on the 2nd of January and wrapping up at Founders Park on the 5th. Each event features a mix of local and out-of-town bands to provide hours of great summer sounds!
Several ticketed evening concerts will take place around the region, including the Andrew London Trio, which is well known for delivering quirky and whimsical songs that reflect mainstream culture with gentle irreverence, delivered in a swinging jazz style.
The festival wouldn’t be complete without lashings of free lunchtime and evening gigs, sponsored and hosted by some of Nelson and Tasman’s finest cafes and bars, and of course, Pic’s Late-Night Peanut Butter Jam Sessions will be kicking off each night from 9:30 pm at East Street Cafe.
Full programme, ticket sales and event details will be released over the coming months - stay tuned!
