Perth International Jazz Festival’s (PIJF) 2021 program is bigger and more varied than ever with new performance spaces, added free community events and an expansion into Busselton – proving everyone loves experiencing live music in WA’s COVID-free bubble!

Taking place from November 5-7 in Perth and November 13 in Busselton, this year’s Festival offers the very best for music lovers of all kinds with performances catering to jazz purists right the way through to the popular jazz-influenced sounds of funk, Latin, hip-hop and beyond.

PIJF opens on the Friday with a free event at the State Theatre Centre – Courtyard with live sets from Dr Richard Walley’s Six Seasons with Junkadelic Orchestra, Daniel Susnjar’s multi-award-winning Afro Peruvian Jazz Group, and a performance via live stream from Amsterdam by Tin Men and the Telephone who’ll present their ‘GREATEST show’ – a spicy combination of jazz tunes and technology that will also be showing on the giant screens at Yagan Square and Northbridge Piazza.

National guest artists across the weekend includes Adelaide multi-instrumentalist, Adam Page, best known for his critically acclaimed multi-instrumental looping performances; two of Australia’s leading improvisers – Scott Tinkler (trumpet) & Julius Schwing (guitar) from Bruny Island, Tasmania; and your new favourite funky-synth-dance trio from Adelaide – Er@ser Description.

PIJF’s expanded program also includes performances at the WA Museum Boola Bardip, the Ellington Jazz Club, The Rechabite, Cathedral Square, and a Secret Rooftop in the CBD, as well as ‘Grooves n Brews’ in partnership with Northbridge Brewing Company at Northbridge Piazza which will be transformed into the hippest outdoor bar.

Along with all the free events in Northbridge Piazza – PIJF is partnering with ECU / WAAPA, City of Perth and Lotterywest for performances in Forrest Place on Saturday and Sunday to showcase new commissions, big bands and panels featuring star WAAPA jazz alumni and graduating students; and on the Sunday, PIJF partners with City of Vincent and Lotterywest for the popular Jazz Picnic in Hyde Park, which includes live performances from some of Perth’s best musicians as well as a Jazz Parade – where anyone can bring an instrument and ‘Come Play’.
