Stonnington Jazz is firmly established as an important event on the national jazz calendar.

We have established a strong track record of presenting memorable performances from a variety of Australian artists based in Melbourne, interstate and internationally. Across a wide range of jazz styles, we feature both established names and those in the early stages of their career.

As always, Stonnington Jazz is a proudly Australian event, reflecting the wealth of talent that can be heard throughout the year in Melbourne and around the country.

Whether you are a passionate jazz fan or a newcomer to the exciting world of jazz, there are plenty of shows in this year’s program that we’re sure you will enjoy.

Stonnington is located in Melbourne, just South of the Yarra River. Suburbs include South Yarra, Prahran, Malvern, Armadale, Hawksburn, Windsor, Malvern East, Toorak and Glen Iris.



Welcome from Artistic Director Chelsea Wilson

Chelsea Wilson returns as Artistic Director for the third consecutive year, with a program that’s bigger and bolder than ever. It is my honour to curate the 2018 Stonnington Jazz Festival and I look forward to sharing with you the visceral energy that is live music. This year I wanted to explore intersections of jazz with other artistic platforms and create opportunities for musical conversations beyond the conventional.Contemporary dance, visual art, film and spoken word feature in special events and dynamic concerts. The program features some  of Australia’s most prolific jazz musicians and composers, alongside emerging artists from the jazz underground.In addition to our exceptional concert program and club series, I am thrilled to announce our first  ever Jazz Industry Summit, which brings together music business professionals, media and musicians for discussions, panels and conversations. Join us at Stonnington Jazz Festival 2018 to celebrate our artists, and our Australian take, on jazz.
