The TD Halifax Jazz Festival is now accepting artist submissions for HJF 2021. After a year of adapting and virtual offerings, HJF is looking forward to welcoming world-class musicians and audiences back to the TD Halifax Jazz Festival from July 13-18, 2021.

Through multiple stages and programming streams, the TD Halifax Jazz Festival delights in supporting and amplifying the immense musical talent on the East Coast, placing local artists alongside internationally acclaimed and award winning acts.

“I am delighted to be thinking about warm weather and great music filling the air in Halifax once again. Although these are turbulent times with an ever-changing situation, I know we will be able to present a program that is going to be new and exciting. I encourage everyone interested in performing to apply, as we want to showcase diverse and wonderful talent from all walks of life," says Andrew Jackson, Senior Program Manager at HJF.
