The 40th annual Manly Jazz will be held over the October long weekend (Sat 30 Sep - Mon 2 Oct) and surrounding dates with performances in multiple indoor and outdoor venues including major stages alongside the world famous Manly Beach.

Manly Jazz is first and foremost a music festival - a real celebration of sound. But it is also a celebration of Australia’s beach culture, good food, great times and especially the wonderful Northern Beaches vibe.
