The annual Edinburgh Jazz and Blues festival runs the gamut of jazz persuasions from more traditional Dixie and ragtime bands to up-and-coming stars, from big band concerts to Latin dance music. The EJBF gets the August Festivals season going.
In 2021, due to restrictions around Covid-19, the festival is operating a live-online hybrid model showing 20 live concerts with small, socially distant audiences at Assembly Roxy and 20 pre-recorded online concerts, each costing £10.
In 2021, due to uncertainty around Covid-19 restrictions, it will be an online "carnival" only. For those who love the extravagant costumes and the live experience of the carnival it will be a disappointment, but on the plus side there will be three days of three-hour events online.
