This year’s Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival will take place from 16 to 25 July 2021. Across the ten days, we will present over 40 digital events, including 20 concerts from Assembly Roxy which will be lived streamed with a small audience. Attendances at these concerts will be strictly limited due to social distancing. 

We will announce the full programme on Tuesday 8 June. Tickets for all events will be sold separately, but we will also have a Festival Pass which will grant access to everything taking place online.  


The festival will have a focus on Scottish artists, and audiences can expect to see a host of familiar faces, many in new settings. We also hope to feature some international favourites. 


Our concerts with Curtis Stigers and Jools Holland at Festival Theatre Edinburgh have both moved to July 2022. 
Edinburgh Festival Carnival will move online with a three-day digital celebration presenting a wide range of local and international performances and online workshops, running from 16 – 18 July 2021.
