Join the jubilant energy of the quintessential New Orleans art form – the second line parade – as we kick off the Festival’s 20th anniversary celebrations.

Melbourne’s own Horns of Leroy and Swing Patrol will lead a joyous and jumpin’ musical march through Southbank, followed by a free outdoor concert at Fed Square. Whether you’re a musician, dancer or just feel like funkin’ it up, put on your marching shoes, rain or shine, and join in the fun!

We’ll be holding workshops in May to help you nail the notes and master your moves - sign up to our eNews at melbournejazz.com to get involved.

The afternoon continues at Federation Square with funk-laden fun from The Steve McQueens (Singapore) and big band performances featuring Australia’s best and brightest emerging jazz musicians.

Featuring:

Monash University Australian Jazz Ensemble 
director Julien Wilson

WAAPA Jazz Ensemble 
director Jamie Oehlers
