JUNE 19 – JULY 1, 2015
Every year Vancouver’s thriving Coastal Jazz and Blues Society brings the city alive with a melting pot of original and exciting music, ranging from jazz, blues, electronica and funk to sounds from diverse musical traditions across the world and innovative fusion performances.
The 2011 edition of this much-loved festival featured nearly 2,000 local and international musicians performing at over 40 venues across the city, from pretty parks and public squares to intimate clubs and stirring concert halls. 2012 is shaping up to be just as exciting. Expect to be surprised, challenged and thrilled by this carnival of diverse genres and performances, which makes merry from midday until dawn the next day.
