About Us

Since its inception in February 2014, the Safaricom International Jazz Festival has evolved into an unmissable celebration of live music.The Festival prides itself in bringing together talented musicians from all over the world and has played a significant role in nurturing the Kenyan jazz scene, making the genre more accessible to fans and bringing together music lovers for a good cause.In addition to the main Festival that takes place each year in February, Safaricom hosts the Safaricom Jazz Lounge twice a year, delivering a heady mix of live music performances within an intimate setting designed to crate a memorable fan experience.But these events are more than the music, dancing and laughter synonymous with Safaricom Jazz; all proceeds go towards supporting Ghetto Classics, a non-profit, community-based program that seeks to transform the lives of youth from underprivileged backgrounds by introducing them to the world of live jazz and classical music.And that’s what makes Safaricom Jazz special: it is music that moves.

Beatiful music till the sun sets

This is one of the most unique events in Kenya. The Safaricom Jazz festival is a favorite for many jazz lovers. You’d be surprised at the crowd this event pulls. It is usually hosted at the carnivore grounds. Knowing carnivore, I bet you that the food at the event is delicious. The event hosts the best of the best in the jazz scene from within the country and abroad. I have been to two festivals and it gets better and better. The tickets go for KES500 for students and KES1500 for non-students. The stage is huge, there are stands selling both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks within the grounds. Most of the time you find the CEO of Safaricom in attendance and this is a huge deal. The dress code is also something to keep in mind. This event demands elegance. Nothing beats listening to live jazz music past sunset and enjoying it with a wonderful group of friends.
