After much deliberation, and more than a little heartbreak, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Melbourne International Jazz Festival.

Read the full message from our CEO here.

So, what happens to your membership if there’s no 2020 festival?

If you’ve recently purchased or renewed a membership, you have three options:

  1. You can help support MIJF in this difficult time by converting your membership into a tax-deductible donation. You’ll be issued an amended receipt for your tax records.
  2. You can roll your membership over for 2021. We’ll honour it for next year and you’ll be ahead of the game.
  3. If you’re not in a position to donate or roll over your membership, you can request a refund. We’ll happily return the value of your membership.

Email us at with your details and your preference.

If haven’t yet bought a membership for 2020 and would like to consider supporting the festival in this difficult time, donations can be made below or more information is available on our donation page here.
