Singapore International Jazz Festival, Singapore Overview

The Singapore International Jazz Festival is a popular jazz musical celebration held every year in the Lion City, featuring award-winning international sensations and local talent. Also known as SingJazz, this extravaganza is held yearly at the Marina Bay Sands and features the best of blues, jazz, and swing music from around the globe. Attended by more than twenty thousand music enthusiasts last year, the event has seen musicians like Grammy-winning Lalah Hathaway, Kamie Cullum, David Foster, Nik West, Soul II Soul, Incognito, and Lauryn Hill grace the stage in power-packed performances.

Spread over three days, the International Jazz Festival in Singapore brings 30 hours of soulful music and great dancing to all fans. With a wide menu offering cuisines from different parts of the world and an expansive bar, SingJazz has great food and beverage sections for revellers. The Jazz Festival has two main stages - The Main Stage at the Event Plaza and the Sands Expo and Convention Centre. The Main Stage allows entry to those aged seven years, and since the Sands Expo hosts the Late Show, which allows people of 18 years and above, it requires an ID prior to one's entry. First held in 2014, this festival is now an iconic event frequented by locals and tourists alike – the after-hours DJ party and performances are a must-watch!
