Good luck from the Kiama Jazz and Blues Festival Team!


The KJBF is a trusted event that prides itself on exemplary and interesting musicianship. Streets, cafes, clubs, pubs, and stages all over the town come alive for the weekend, bustling with a passionate, fun-filled, music-loving crowd. From dirty blues to exceptional jazz and any interpretations and evolutions of these genres, a stage is waiting. What music isn't the heart beat of blues with the freedom of jazz :)

We take pride in supporting our Festival musicians but keep in mind when you quote your fee, that we are an NFP, volunteer-run Festival, presenting a free to attend, unique music event. Budget is tight but applause & opportunity is abundant. We would love you to join us.
