Cape Town Jazz Fest organisers say unforeseen challenges to blame for cancellation

Organizers of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival said that several unexpected factors influenced their difficult decision to postpone the event.

The festival was scheduled to take place on 17 and 18 March 2023.

However, the festival – referred to as “Africa’s Grandest Gathering” – will now be held on 23 and 24 February 2024.

Event management company espAfrika said the reasons for the rescheduling included a series of unavoidable delays and unforeseen challenges, as well as uncertainties around the future of load shedding – all of which have negatively impacted planning for 2023.

Those who purchased tickets from Ticketmaster may either retain them for the 2024 event or obtain a full refund from the Ticketmaster site here.
