All about the festival

The festival is renowned for bringing top Australian talent together, all set against the beautiful backdrop of Noosa Heads with its many beaches and lush national parkland areas.
One of the most popular and long-established jazz festivals in the whole country, the Noosa Jazz Festival started out from humble beginnings as a decidedly smaller gathering within a single local restaurant.
"Jazz lovers, get ready to revel in the sounds of the Noosa Jazz Festival."
Of course, the festival has grown by leaps and bounds since then and today. The team behind it is proud to boast over 90 performances in a variety of venues and stages throughout the duration of the event.
The Festival Village at Noosa Lions Park is where all the action takes place, with plenty to see, hear and do at the Mainstage, various Masterclasses and food and market stalls.
