Brecon Jazz Festival is a music festival held on an annual basis in the rural surroundings of Brecon, in south Powys, Mid Wales. Normally staged in early August, it plays host to a range of jazz musicians who travel from across the world to take part and to many visiting tourists who are attracted by the music, the social scene and the other leisure opportunities on offer in and around the Brecon Beacons.
From June 2009 until December 2011 it has been produced by the Hay Festival and funded by the Arts Council of Wales. Orchard, a Cardiff-based events and media group, are the new operators of the Brecon Jazz Festival as from 2012. The new promoters hope to bring colour and atmosphere to the streets of Brecon whilst acknowledging the fact that “Brecon Jazz is a heritage brand with a worldwide reputation.”
Brecon Jazz Festival set for August 9 – 11, 2013.
