CTIJF 2021 POSTPONED
espAfrika, the event organisers of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival (CTIJF) would like to thank you for your patience and support during this unprecedented time.
The decision to postpone the 2020 Cape Town International Jazz Festival in March was one not taken lightly and made in the best interest of our valued festival goers, sponsors, and corporate clients. This decision was accompanied by an optimistic view to host the festival once again in 2021. Sadly, we currently find ourselves in the midst of a dreaded second wave of covid-19 infections, the impact of which, by all accounts, we will feel deep into 2021.
The health and safety of everyone involved with the festival is of paramount importance. It is for this reason that we have decided to postpone the festival to 2022. We trust that our valued sponsors, corporate clients and festinos will stand with us in caution and solidarity to play our part in minimizing the spread of this virus.
While the road to CTIJF 2022 will be a long one, it will not be without the joy and nostalgia jazz music brings. We have been working hard behind the scenes to bring brand new series of online events and smaller live jazz experiences throughout 2021. JazzFix will be formally launched early in the new year. The online shows present footage of some of the festival’s greatest moments and shows exclusively performed at the festival over the past 20 years, which includes interviews with artists who performed! The shows promise to be the perfect “FIX” of entertainment for the lovers of all genres of jazz!
