The Cape Town International Jazz Festival has grown into a hugely successful international event since its inception in the year 2000. Attendance figures have increased from the initial 14.000 to 34.000 in the last 12 years and that number will grow this March.

Melodytrip has ranked this proudly South African event as No.4 in the world, outshining events such as Switzerland's Montreaux Festival and the North Sea Jazz Festival in Holland.

The Cape Town International Jazz festival’s winning formula of bringing more than 40 international and local jazz artists to perform over two days on five stages has earned it the status of being the most prestigious event on the African continent.

Known as Africa's grandest gathering, the festival will be in its thirteen year when it takes place on Friday 30 March and Saturday 31 March 2012 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

And of course there will again be the annual free concert that is held before the start of the Jazz Festival at Green Market Square. More information on the free concert coming soon.

If you have never been to the Cape Town International Jazz Festival check out a few video’s from the CTIJF 2011 and you will be wondering why this is your first time.
