Purdue Jazz Festival

The 30th Annual Purdue Jazz Festival will be held January 16th-18th, 2020! The big-band and combo competition will take place on Saturday, January 18th. To celebrate the 30th anniversary, the Saturday evening finale concert featuring the Purdue Jazz Band and guest artists, Tia Fuller and Aubrey Logan will be held in Elliott Hall of Music, which will allow everyone to attend! The festival will host 24 outstanding adjudicators from across the country, as well as several internationally renowned clinicians and guest artists, including Mark Buselli, our 2020 Artist-in-Residence. We are continuing to offer an all-inclusive entry fee that covers everything except the Friday night concert. Contact  Purdue Convocations at (765) 494-3933 or (800) 914-SHOW for tickets to ARTEMIS.

We intend to admit a maximum of 90 big bands and 30 combos, which will be filled on a first come-first serve basis after placing priority on those who deferred their payments to this year from last.  We look forward to having you join us for a fantastic weekend celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Purdue Jazz Festival!
