The 2018 annual Castlemaine Jazz Festival will take place right in the heart of Castlemaine at a number of separate (historic) venues, each within walking distance and all especially selected to create the ideal environment to enjoy the weekend of jazz. 

The 19th century gold-mining town of Castlemaine in central Victoria will be swinging to the exciting sounds of jazz next month. 

Eighty outstanding bands and around 350 highly talented musicians showcasing various jazz styles and eras are lined up to play from the Friday evening.  

Highlights of this year’s Festival include :

Nubya Garcia, renowned saxophonist and composer from UK.

Guest artists Astrid Sulaiman (piano) and Yuri Mahatma (guitar) with their Quartet from Bali. Castlemaine Jazz Festival has formed a partnership with Ubud Village Jazz Festival with a view to cultural exchange and performance opportunities for jazz artists.

The Goldfields Jazz Orchestra will be giving their debut performance. These highly talented musicians are instrument teachers for all corners of the goldfields region. This is a great opportunity to showcase the amazing skills of instrumental teachers from the region.

Another new feature will be the inclusion of a Youth Segment where local secondary students can perform alongside other festival musicians. The Festival strongly encourages the talents and future of young musicians in our region.
