When is the Melbourne International Jazz Festival?

The 2021 Melbourne International Jazz Festival will be held from 15 – 24 October 2021.


How do I purchase tickets?

Tickets will go on-sale through this website with the full program announcement in August this year. Sign up to our e-news for details of pre-sales and special announcements.

From 22 July, you’ll be able to purchase tickets to Big Sunday – the first event (and maybe our biggest!) announced for 2021.

Tickets for most events can be purchased online through the Melbourne International Jazz Festival website or by calling (03) 9001 1388.

Depending on the event, tickets may be purchased through the venue where the event is occurring or an authorised seller and are sometimes available at the venue box office on the night (subject to availability).


The event I’m looking at says “Join Waitlist”, what does this mean?

Due to COVID restrictions, we have gone on-sale with limited capacities in many venues. If an event is showing as “Join Waitlist” this means that we have sold out our current allocation or tickets. Please add your details to our waitlist to be notified if more tickets become available.

How do I get my tickets?

Tickets purchased through the Melbourne International Jazz Festival website will be emailed to you.

If you purchased your tickets through the venue or an authorised seller please contact the point of purchase directly.
