- Winter in Central Victoria heats up with the 4th Castlemaine Jazz Festival. This year offers an extensive program, featuring 90 bands playing in nine unique venues to be found in this historic goldfield town.
- The 2017 Castlemaine Jazz Festival will showcase 90 jazz bands from Friday evening, through to late Sunday evening. Fancy Jazz in a church, a decommissioned gaol, an historic pioneer hall, local café, maybe the local theatre (the longest continuously operating theatre in mainland Australia), or perhaps a pub setting is more to your style? The Castlemaine Jazz festival has it all this year.
Our 350 festival musicians will be delivering a wide range of jazz entertainment, from well-known New Orleans traditional, 1920-40’s swing, jazz-blues, tunes from the Great American Songbook, world fusion sounds, along with contemporary and original Australian jazz pieces. Big Band sounds can be heard on the Sunday at two venues: the Old Castlemaine Gaol and the Theatre Royal. A couple of new activities this year include a Jazz Mass on Sunday morning and a couple of Big Band Karaoke segments where festival patrons can get involved.
