Hot music and cool vibes at Noosa Jazz Festival

Sue Mikkelsen

The first weekend in spring means 2 things in Noosa – Father’s Day and the Noosa Jazz Festival. If your dad loves music, you’re sorted! A ticket to the Noosa Jazz Festival for Father’s Day will cover it all!

The 24th Noosa Jazz Festival kicks off this Thursday 3 September and plays through until Sunday with fantastic music from Wendy Matthews, Darren Percival, Colleen Hewett, Emma Pask and plenty more - SEE THE SCHEDULE.

Festival Village at Noosa Heads Lions Park has been transformed into a stylish picnic ground with jazz bands on the main stage by Noosa River, master classes, food and market stalls, kids’ games – even croquet and lounges!

The music is diverse, with a variety of forms of jazz, blues, folk, amazing school bands, a talent search and plenty more. Just as diverse are the venues – apart from Festival Village there are also jazz river cruises, intimate performances in restaurants around town including Rococo, Cafe Le Monde, Crawdaddy's, Miss Moneypenny's and in Laguna Arcade, music in the streets, and you can hear from the artists at the legends lunch series.

The opening parade is a fun and vibrant event down Hastings Street on Friday from noon, right before the legendary Tastings on Hastings which transforms the famous shopping street into a massive outdoor restaurant with some of Hastings Street’s best restaurants serving up.

If you’re heading to the festival this weekend, park at Noosa Junction bus station and catch a local bus to the nearby Festival Village or take a Noosa Ferry to Hastings Street from one of several stops between Noosa Marina at Tewantin, Noosaville and Noosa Heads.

Noosa Jazz Festival tickets are priced from $30 for adult day ticket and season passes available. If your dad loves jazz, a Father’s Day Pack will be a great treat - $65 for 2 adults and 2 children in Festival Village this Sunday 6 September.
