After last year’s amazing 30th birthday celebrations, in 2023 we are delighted to mark the 15th anniversary of EFG’s partnership with the Festival. Over the course of time, we have seen the Festival flourish and our long-standing relationship means we feel an integral part of this iconic event in the global jazz calendar. We admire and aspire to share the distinctive values of jazz that are so aligned with our business, embracing creativity and innovation, diversity and collaboration.
The EFG London Jazz Festival has grown into a much-loved meeting place where the past, present and future of jazz come together. Every year, global jazz legends mix with the next generation of rising stars to produce some memorable live performances that will live long in the memory. The Festival has also become a vital stage on which aspiring young artists can find their voice and this valuable legacy reinforces our ongoing commitment to talent development and the creation of new music.
At the heart of this year’s programme is the EFG Elements Series, four shows we hand-pick in conjunction with Festival organisers Serious, that reflects the richness and variety of the line-up. The first show in the EFG Elements Series, Jazz Voice, has a long tradition of opening the Festival in style and sets the tone for 10 days of live music across the capital.
We very much look forward to celebrating our 15 years of partnership with the EFG London Jazz Festival in 2023 and hope you enjoy all it has to offer.
