NORTH SEA JAZZ FESTIVAL (article first published : 2003-11-21)

EspMOJO, the joint South African (esp AFRIKA) and Dutch (MOJO Concerts) organisers of the North Sea Jazz Festival in Cape Town, have announced some important changes to mark the Festival’s upcoming fifth anniversary in 2004.

The festival will be moving to its new home at the Cape Town International Convention Centre for the staging of the 2004 event and will be moved from its normal time slot to coincide with the launch of South Africa’s "Ten Years into Democracy" anniversary celebrations.

In 2004 the North Sea Jazz Festival – Cape Town will take place in April (April 10 and 11) but will rever to the normal last weekend in March in 2005.

As with previous North Sea Jazz Festivals in Cape Town, espMOJO are expecting a large attendance, with jazz fans arriving from across Southern Africa, Europe, USA, Asia, and many other distant spots on the globe, to attend the annual festival, which is now an established fixture on the World Jazz Festival circuit. The success of the previous four Festivals has proved to be a major boost for jazz music and musicians in South Africa, and also for the City of Cape Town, whose long-standing support has seen a huge financial spin-off for the city from all the visitors in town over the festival weekend.

Tickets R260 (single day) and R399 (weekend) available at Computicket. Details of venues, artists, sponsors, travel packages, and other innovative new offers, will be revealed in mid-December.
