The four days will feature world class music from an amazing array of international jazz artists from the deep tradition to the cutting edge.

Brighton’s own saxophone superstar Julian Nicholas will be playing on Thursday and will feature Imogen Ryall on vocals. They will be exploring his rich catalogue of compositions which are steeped in the UK jazz tradition.

Pyjaen will be performing on the Friday

On Friday, the genre blending five-piece Pyjaen will be fearlessly fusing jazz, funk and hip hop into a potent party mix with their trademark raw energy, and the common objective of bringing people together in their love for music.

Chelsea Carmichael and Binker Golding will be performing on the Sunday
