New this Year:
15 Years later, we continue to enjoy massive support from the public, the music industry, government and corporates. Besides the extension of the festival to two days, the sterling array of artists, the improvement of our internal systems and corporate governance, other new offerings include a commercial VIP, which means people can now purchase tickets directly from computicket, and also corporates and other interested parties can buy corporate packages in the form of lounge setups, corporate marquees or corporate parks. Also parking has been improved, big enough to accommodate all without the need to park far from the site, also an option to be ferried for our VIPs.
“Our main goal as we celebrate our 15th year is to restore the festival to its former glory as a “jazz” festival, family friendly and highly anticipated by all with improved access and minimal bottlenecks as people move in and out”, adds Wanita Ngcobo – Project Director for the Durban Jazz Festival.
