Newport Jazz Festival 1st & 2nd May 2021


57 weeks to go!

60+ Bands looks likely

Katerina Myskova the first to register… Jen Salisbury ditto

A bit to our surprise, very few musos have withdrawn their registration, and the date looks good… although one might wonder if this lockdown will end in time…

We will guarantee any band on that list that wants to stay registered a spot for next year.

The Financial Plan: first draft of 2021 Festival done (and submitted to HBCC).

The Bands: we actually had 64 bands register their interest this year – without any advertising at all. So 72 bands seems like an achievable target and that is what we area aiming for..

The Venues: We are hoping to add The Substation (two venues) to the list as well as possibly putting a Marquee on Paine’s Reserve.

The Festival Committee plans to reconvene in December 2020
