#jazz100 are launching the next 100 years of jazz in the UK and Ireland. Focused on jazz in the UK and Ireland, #jazz100 will be an awareness campaign that highlights the diversity and energy of the music today, considers how the next 100 years will unfold and celebrates the story of jazz music and culture. Centred around the hashtag #jazz100, the campaign will unite people working in jazz, inspire existing jazz fans, and introduce new people to the music.
Jazz is vibrant, spontaneous, exciting and experimental - and we want to share this with everyone. For decades the UK and Ireland have produced outstanding jazz musicians, festivals and clubs, and welcomed the world’s greatest artists to our stages. #jazz100 invites all music lovers to come together with the common goal of building a strong future for jazz.
