PRESS RELEASE NEWCASTLE JAZZ FESTIVAL COVID-19

We have had to take the difficult decision to cancel Newcastle Jazz Festival this year due to Covid-19.

Although the festival may have been able to take place in August 2020, we fear that social distancing rules will prevent venues from allowing the capacity we require to run the festival.

Thank you so much to those who have supported the festival's planning this year and to those who have purchased tickets in advance. All ticket holders have been contacted, if you have not received any information about your tickets for 2020, please e-mail
support@ticketsource.co.uk

A special thanks to those artists and venues who, when already suffering during this crisis, have postponed their bookings to our new 2021 dates between 12th and 15th August.
Tickets are on sale at our web site for 2021.

2020 is not completely a lost cause - we are planning live online events over the original festival dates - keep an eye on our social media for details.

At this time of crisis in live music your support is essential, not just to NJF, but to the wider music community in our region - many musicians and venues are in a precarious situation. Please continue to attend and share online streams, purchase music downloads and CDs, and spread the word so that our North East music scene can continue to thrive post Covid-19.

Thank you again for your support, and we can't wait to welcome you back in 2021.
Yours sincerely,
Michael & Jamie
(Festival Directors)
