The Melbourne International Jazz Festival returns for all the improvisation, scatting and smooth swing tunes you can handle

Now in its 22nd year, the Melbourne International Jazz Festival has grown to include a huge number of events for jazz enthusiasts young and old. Every year the festival descends on the city's live music venues for concerts, free events and arty late night parties. 

Each year the festival strives to produce a diverse program: you'll find top jazz headliners alongside emerging artists and local musos. The festival is all about creating an inviting environment for everyone to appreciate jazz – not just the hardcore cool cats. 

Headling this year's festival is 14-time Grammy winning pianist and jazz great Herbie Hancock, who will play two shows at Hamer Hall. Hancock joins more than 350 Australian and international artists who will perform in over 25 venues during the 10-day festival.
