In 2014, over 100,000 music lovers flocked to Manly Beach to hear artists such as internationally acclaimed trumpeter Terrell Stafford (New York), Soul-Jazz organist Michel Bénébig (New Caledonia), Australian presenter and jazz singer Monica Trapaga, and the multitalented Lionel Cole, plus many more great local and international acts.

Manly Jazz is first and foremost a music festival - a real celebration of sound. But it is also a celebration of Australia’s beach culture, good food, great times and especially the wonderful Manly vibe. What better place to do so than right here at our beautiful beachfront?

Judging by the record crowds at Manly Jazz 2014, the event was a huge success. A big thank you to event sponsors, volunteers and all who were involved in the event.
