Down with Jazz

An illicit hooley in the heart of Dublin City, with a line-up of shameless jazzy grooves and lascivious foreign rhythms.

“The festival with a sense of humour” (The Irish Times) harks back to a more repressive Ireland when jazz and ‘foreign’ music was seen by the Catholic Church as ‘devil’s music’ and seen as a source of scandal and ruin.

Today’s Down With Jazz festival links audiences with 21st century Ireland’s vibrant and diverse music scene through the tongue-in-cheek prism of this notorious period of social history.
