8th November 2019 – (Hong Kong) On 9th and 10th November this weekend, Freespace Jazz Fest brings you a weekend of jazz and world music with over 30 spectacular events at Freespace and the Art Park.

The free music events start in the morning and include two day-time programmes of stellar performances by world-class artists and local jazz stars. Indoors, you can dip in and out of their music programmes in The Box. Outdoors, you can relax with a picnic and enjoy two diverse line-ups on the Great Lawn.

In the Lau Bak Livehouse you can join their Weekend Brunch sessions and learn more about the art of jazz through conversations with musicians and live demonstrations, join a Poetry Music Jam by the House of Hong Kong Literature, or enjoy a series of live afternoon music performances.

Also indoors at Freespace, you can join meet-the-artist sessions where jazz musicians and practitioners share insights on music-making and women’s role in jazz. And for professionals, there are closed-door jazz workshops and jam sessions with international artists. 

Free Events: Screening / Dance / Market

On Saturday, in partnership with MOViE MOViE, there will be a screening of the multiple award-winning music feature documentary 20 Feet from Stardom in The Room.

On Sunday, on the harbourfront promenade and other locations around the Art Park, Hong Kong Ballet presents a jazz-infused performance of The Great Gatsby and a series of site-specific dance works.
