King Street Corner Pocket Jazz Festival 2020

Thu 30 July – Sat 1 August, 2020

In 2019, the torrential rain couldn’t keep you away. Hundreds of people braved the elements to check out WA’s top emerging and established jazz musicians all around the King Street precinct for an astonishing weekend of music.

So we can’t help ourselves. We’re braving the elements again, and King Street Corner Pocket Jazz Festival returns for its third go-round in 2020.

With over 50 performances across three days, cheap tickets, cozy venues and hot jazz, everyone will want a piece of the Corner Pocket action.

Performers interested in performing at the festival, applications open 9.00am Tuesday 18 February, and close 11.59pm Friday 20 March, 2020. 

Keep an eye out on our website, and subscribe to WAYJO eNews. The full line-up to be announced in May!

King Street Corner Pocket Jazz Festival is supported by the City of Perth.
