As you will be aware, unfortunately we have been unable to present a number of our planned concerts this year and of course the annual Rye International Jazz and Blues Festival this August bank holiday weekend. It goes without saying that we miss our loyal festival goers, our talented artists, supportive sponsors, professional partners and our wonderful festival team.

Despite not being able to proceed with the 2020 August festival, we are delighted to confirm that we have rescheduled three of our original headline artists to perform in Rye at the 10th anniversary festival in August 2021.
