Melbourne International Jazz Festival (MIJF) is a proudly not-for-profit organisation—presenting the highest calibre of jazz and improvised music in Australia, while fostering the next generation of talent. 

We rely on the support of passionate people and partners to bring the Festival to life each year.

This October will see the return of international jazz musicians to the Melbourne International Jazz Festival for the first time since 2019—and we can’t wait to reunite you with the very best of local and global artists across iconic concert halls, laneways and intimate jazz clubs in spring.

After a devastating two years for live music and the performing arts, it’s your support that will strengthen MIJF in 2022 and beyond—helping create more opportunities for jazz and improvised music to connect and uplift us all in these months ahead.

As we recalibrate and recover, you can be a part of the future of Melbourne jazz.


Right now, your support will help MIJF deliver a truly outstanding festival—and bolster our year-round artist, sector development and community programs in 2022.

Your tax-deductible donation will help strengthen and sustain the Festival as we recalibrate in the new COVID-normal—ensuring MIJF can continue to provide a world-class musical experience for you this October, alongside strengthening our dedicated artist development programs and sector initiatives to support Australian artists, year-round.

Artistic Excellence

MIJF presents the world’s great jazz legends and modern masters direct to local audiences. We champion collaboration, bringing together the biggest names in international jazz alongside leading and emerging Australian artists.

We commission Australian artists to develop and present new work at the Festival each year, providing a context for them to take risks, explore and expand the artform, and build their national and international profile.

MIJF delivers a series of programs and initiatives dedicated to supporting artists and industry at all levels, including our Gender Equity initiative, our First Nations Artist Residency Program, and our MIJF Presents: Artist Showcase Series.
