EFG London Jazz FestivalThe annual EFG London Jazz Festival, which returns for a 23rd time in 2015, presents 2,500 artists across 60 venues over the course of the 10-day festival. More than 250 shows take place in London's best concert halls and arts centres including the Southbank Centre, Royal Albert Hall, Barbican Centre, Ronnie Scott's, 606 Club, The Forge, the Rich Mix Centre, Artsdepot, Wigmore Hall and Cadogan Hall. The organisers habitually attract some top performers including MOBO and Grammy award winners and blend them together with both newcomers and mainstays of the jazz scene - from stars of the American jazz tradition to key players of the European scene and free musical thinkers. Given the obsessive nature of ardent jazz fans together with the small venues (which include restaurants and bars), tickets often sell out fast, you have been warned.

About Southbank Centre

London's hub of cultural arts, The Southbank Centre announced in March 2013 that it's set for a £100 million revamp that will see the 1960s design finally move into the 21st century with a proposal that includes a floating glass pavilion, two more roof gardens, a space for riverside arts and a large pedestrian area.
