Jazz admirers can look forward to a star-studded global line-up and an exciting mix of home-grown talent at this year’s The Standard Bank Joy of Jazz. The new-look event will take place at the Sandton Convention Centre from 25 to 27 September 2014 and marks sixteen years of putting South Africa on the international jazz map!
In previous years, the staging of the Joy of Jazz in the Newtown Cultural precinct has played an integral part in the regeneration of the inner city, having had significant benefits in helping to shape the future of Johannesburg and contributing to the city's changing creative and cultural landscape. The move from Newtown, where the venue has reached its capacity, to Sandton shows the festival’s overwhelming success and continued popularity.
