Cheltenham Jazz Festival launches search for local performers

Gloucestershire performers are invited to audition to perform at Cheltenham Jazz Festival’s Around Town venues throughout the 2020 festival.

One of the biggest festivals in Cheltenham’s calendar, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, has launched a hunt for local talent to perform at the festival as part of its Around Town programme.

Taking place from Tuesday 5 to Sunday 10 May 2020, the search welcomes applications from acoustic singer-songwriters, bands, dancers, artists and street performers.

Festivals director Ian George said: ‘Participating in the Around Town programme is a great way to get yourself noticed – jazz artists, agents and promoters are around morning and night taking in the jazz vibe over the Festival period.’

A number of different opportunities are available, with pop-up performances in the town centre and free stage slots at the festival site all up for grabs.

Performers will be paid a fixed expenses fee of £160 and will also be featured in the Around Town flyer, on the Cheltenham Festivals website and on the festival’s app.

The deadline for applications is Monday 3 February 2020.
