Down With Jazz, the Irish jazz festival that reels back the decades to the anti-jazz movement of the '30’s, is back for a sixth edition this 10-11th June 2017, presented by Dublin's Improvised Music Company.

Who knows what class of devilment the capitol’s citizens will get up if the sun comes out, with hip swivelling music and decadent improvising from the country’s finest jazz musicians?

Contemporary and inclusive, Down With Jazz is a big tent that welcomes musicians and music lovers of all persuasions, from funk and electronica, to chamber pop and free improv, with a line-up that reflects our diversity today.
