DJAZZ – The Durham City Jazz Festival brings together a number of different musical styles, groups, networks and audiences in the small but perfectly formed city of Durham. Festival-goers gain access to over 30 events ranging from intimate sets in hidden locations to big names in big venues! Think everything from cafes, bookshops and barbers to bars, venues and stunning historic buildings.

In our second year we’ve brought you a fantastic roster of national acts who are tearing up the UK jazz scene including festival headliner Soweto Kinch. At the same time we bring you the absolute best from the regional and student scenes which make up the jazz landscape in Durham and contribute to the city’s growing profile as a hotbed for the genre.

DJAZZ is brought to you by AT THE ROOT & Empty Shop in partnership with Durham University Jazz Society.

New partners this year also include:
Jazz North
Jazz Plus Productions
Culture Durham

This partnership led approach enables us to deliver a festival which reflects the city that inspired its creation. Bringing together musicians and audiences from the region, the university and further afield, the festival utilises some of the fantastic venues and spaces in this historic city.
