The Perth International Jazz Festival (PIJF) makes its much anticipated return in Perth from Saturday 7 October – Sunday 5 November and on tour to Busselton and Yallingup Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 November.

Presenting an array of incredible jazz performances in the Perth Cultural Precinct, Hyde Park any other venues across Perth, the Festival features ticketed and free community events for you to enjoy!

Stay tuned as we will be rolling out the festival program in the coming weeks. We promise to bring you a safe, fun, community focused weekend that will have something for everyone.

Welcome to PIJF!


Established in 2012, PIJF was the brain-child of (the late) Associate Professor Graham Wood. Together with the Board of Directors, the Festival in its first year was ranked 4th in Time Out’s ‘Top 7 Australian Jazz Festivals’ (August 2013) and featured in the West Australian’s Art’s ‘Best in the West’ (2013).

The purpose of the PIJF is to promote jazz music to the wider community, including the international community. It aims to bring inspiring music by talented musicians from around Australia and the world to Western Australia, and present creative programs in an accessible and vibrant way. Our vision is to become nationally and internationally acclaimed as one of the world’s iconic jazz festivals and attract distinguished jazz performers from all around the globe.

Our focus on sustainability

PIJF is committed to keeping our environmental impact as low as possible. This year we are excited to continue our sustainability initiatives, including the printing of the program on 90% recycled paper.

We will have water stations available, so be sure to bring your own water bottle to stay hydrated with free refills!

We want to reduce single use plastics as much as we can with biodegradable cups on offer in the State Theatre Centre Courtyard. And our indoor venues use glass or reusable plastic cups.
