As Thredbo’s longest running music festival The Thredbo Jazz Festival has entertained  music fans for close to a quarter of a century.   However over the past few years there has been a growing demand from both a younger audience and younger players  to broaden the musical reach of this Thredbo institution.

Festival organisers have responded  and on the weekend of April the 15th  the Thredbo Jazz, Funk and Groove Festival will  entertain both longtime Jazz fans  and new with a broad range of music from the Traditional and Main Stream styles that have made Thredbo’s name to the Jazz Fusion and Funk Styles whose high energy and soulful feel  keeps the dance floor busy way into the early hours.

As usual Thredbo will play a starring role in this festival. With fresh autumn air and the sounds of great music echoing off the hills  the atmosphere  will build throughout the weekend to a frenzy of  jam sessions and good times in the early hours of Monday Morning.

Some of the players featured at this years festival include:

Doug Parkinson
Marc Mittag
The View From Madeleines Couch
Jane Irvine Quartet with:
Hugh Barret, Cameron Reid & Kevin hailey

Lionel Robinson and the In Crowd
Grover Featuring Fantine Pitoula
