City of Derry Jazz Festival

The biggest and best Jazz Festival makes its return to Derry~Londonderry from 7th -11th May 2020. 

Back for its 19th year, the Jazz Festival features artists from all over the world and will attract more than 70,000 revellers over the bank holiday weekend. 
The City of Derry Jazz Festival is delighted to welcome the return of one of the biggest names in Irish music – Van Morrison – to headline this year’s event.

He'll be performing at the Millennium Forum on Sunday May 10th in what promises to be sensational night of music. 

Van Morrison last headlined the festival back in 2018, when he brought the house down with a captivating medley of jazz classics and his definitive collection of rhythm and blues hits.

This year fans can expect another flawless performance of favourites from the music legend’s impressive back catalogue of hits spanning the decades. With over 40 studio albums under his belt, the multi-award winning song writer and performer’s authenticity and energy continue to enthral audiences who travel from across the world for his shows.
