News: The organizers of the Oxford Jazz Festival – a slightly altered production team from last year because of moves into and out of the area – have decided to cancel this year’s festival, and to regroup for 2014. Their announcement is as follows:

Important Announcement

After much consideration and discussion, Oxford Jazz Festival directors Max Mason and Alissa J. Robinson, along with programmer Tim Hand, have decided to postpone this year’s festival. Met with several unforeseeable obstructions while deep into planning a festival which was to be bigger and more exciting than in previous years, the decision was made to hold off until 2014, when the Festival can be done right. We never wanted to do OxJazz halfway – every year we grew bigger and more varied – and we’re not about to step backwards now, when we have such great support, and so many exciting ideas. Mark your calendars for 14-19 April 2014. We’ll keep you posted on any developments.

In the meantime, please continue to support Oxford’s great jazz community.

All the best, The Oxford Jazz Festival

    It's rare to see people nowadays courageous enough to be able to stop, regroup, get stronger with better quality instead of privileging quantity. Well done!
