Perform at the 2007 Valley Jazz Festival in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia!

From 24th – 29th April 2007, Brisbane's premier music precinct Fortitude Valley, will re-ignite with the return of the Valley Jazz Festival. The festival is Brisbane’s only multi-venue jazz festival with free and low cost events in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley entertainment precinct.

The Valley Jazz Festival 2007 will headline the internationally acclaimed Vince Jones and showcase the forefront of contemporary Australian jazz with acts including, Scott Tinkler Quartet, The Band of 5 Names and James Sherlock Quartet. This will all be supported by over 50 jazz acts, and more than 160 artists in our new extended 6 day program.

The Valley Jazz Festival is specifically seeking, innovative improvised music acts, in avant garde, free jazz, post-modern and contemporary jazz styles, that are critically focused on jazz as an art form. We support local and emerging talent and provide a platform for presenting national and international artists. Selected artists will be compensated for their performance.

A high quality of programming is maintained via an extensive selection process, employed by a panel of Jazz Qld and industry representatives. Program selection decisions are final and no further correspondence regarding final selection can be entered into. In the event that we are unable to include your act in this year's program it is usually not on the grounds of quality but rather factors of cost, duplication of something we already have, or acts that don't fit into the style of the festival.

All applicants will receive a result of their application in the mail by mid November 2006.

Please note: All travel to Brisbane and accommodations must be arranged and paid for by the artist. The festival will organize your shuttle both ways between the festival/accommodation and Brisbane airport.

Also note that applicants who applied in 2005 will still be considered by the selection panel for the 2007 Festival. Please advise us if you are no longer available, by emailing to:

The annual Valley Jazz Festival was founded in 2004 by Jazz Queensland and experienced considerable growth in 2005 with larger audiences and additional performance venues.
