'A beautiful atmosphere, appreciative crowd and great music that was paced brilliantly' The Irish Times

Down With Jazz returns to Temple Bar on the 6th, 7th and 8th September for 3 days of sinfully good jazz, depraved improvisation and debauched dancing. The festival back-story of the anti-jazz campaigns of 1930’s Ireland grabbed imaginations for the inaugural festival in August 2012, with crowds of over 1,500 descending on Meeting House Square.

This September we continue to celebrate this 'music borrowed from the savages of Africa by the anti-God society' (Father Peter Conefrey, Leitrim, 1934) with round two of the Down With Jazz festival.

The 2013 festival, with it’s ‘foreign rhythms and diabolical airs’ will take place on the sacred weekend of the GAA hurling final. To honour this, Down With Jazz is expanding it’s propaganda beyond the pale, with other ‘county colours’ bringing their divilishly modern music to the big smoke.

Come celebrate the new alternative in Meeting House Square from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th September and enjoy the ‘filthy rhythms’ of jazz, blues, and funk under the canopies in Meeting House Square, Temple Bar.
