15 April - 17 April The Sage, Gateshead, Newcastle-upon-Tyne

Tyneside hosts the annual Gateshead Jazz Festival, a weekend feast for jazz-lovers. The festival attracts an eclectic array of performers to Tyneside.

Evening gigs take place at the Sage, Gateshead, a landmark building deigned by Lord Foster on a waterfront site, which boasts several performance spaces, a Music Education Centre, four bars, a café and brassserie.

Performance Programme Director Ros Rigby comments: “Gateshead International Jazz Festival has now become established on the UK jazz calendar as an opportunity to see the very best in UK and international jazz in an action packed weekend all under one roof, and in superb performance spaces.”

The festival is produced in collaboration with international music producers Serious (producers of London Jazz Festival in association with BBC Radio 3). John Cumming, director of Serious, adds: “Serious places immense value on its role in the evolution of Gateshead International Jazz Festival. This has become an event that reflects the extraordinary range of jazz within today’s musical universe, as well as having a distinctive style that illustrates The Sage Gateshead’s commitment to music education in its broadest sense.”

Over the weekend there is also a full programme of workshops, conversations and improvisation sessions and masterclasses with many of Britain's leading jazz performers.
