Brecon is set for a whirlwind of performances this year -with an all-encompassing line-up you are set to see some of the biggest names in jazz as well as a parade of up-and-comers.

This year the atmosphere will again be enhanced with colourful street entertainment that proved so popular in keeping all ages entertained around town.

The Brecon Jazz 2015 programme this year boasts the most international line-up in the event’s 31 year history. It’s going to be a party you don’t want to miss! Big name American headliners, exclusive performances, intriguing crossovers and global artists from Scandinavia through Romania, Brittany and Catalonia to Brazil that reflect jazz music’s global reach.  The full programme of events can be found on the Brecon Jazz website
