Tourism Bay of Plenty would like to invite you to New Zealand’s largest jazz festival and the third largest jazz festival in the world; the National Jazz Festival Tauranga.

It is the longest running jazz festival in the southern hemisphere, having been in operation for over 50 years.

A highlight of the 2013 festival is London-based Nathan Haines, performing his show The Poet’s Embrace. The show has received international critical acclaim and spent a month in the top 20 New Zealand album charts.

The festival also includes a tribute to the late, great Ella Fitzgerald by one of the country’s leading Jazz singers, Jennine Bailey; and Sons of Sinatra, a homage to today’s young lions including Michael Bublé, Harry Connick Jr. and Jamie Cullum.
