This picturesque jazz and blues festival is the perfect city escape

Get out of the big smoke and into a world of music and sunshine. 

Situated in the foothills of the Yarra Valley, Marysville Jazz and Blues Weekend is bringing together some top-notch local and international acts across three days and four stages. 
Encompassing music, workshops, food and wine, the award-winning festival is just a couple of hours' drive from the city. The likes of ARIA Award-winner Russell Morris, Lloyd Spiegel, Mama Alto, Geoff Achison & The Soul Diggers and more will all be performing amongst the trees, with further highlights including Justin Yapp, Anita Harris, The Tracey Roberts Quartet, and more. 
What was initially the idea of a local Marysville resident Peter Guest, the first Jazz and Blues Weekend event was established in 2015. Since then, the 2016 and 2017 events are organised by a small and dedicated hard working community committee assisted by local volunteers, which resulted in the Murrindindi Shire and Victorian Government awarding the Marysville Jazz and Blues Weekend "Best Community Event Of The Year" in 2015 and 2016.

Marysville Jazz and Blues Weekend goes down from Friday October 20 - Sunday October 22.
