Lagos International Jazz Festival 2016

The Lagos International Jazz festival 2016 – Nigeria’s Premier Jazz Festival from the 29th April – 1 May.
The Lagos International Jazz festival (LIJF) produced by Inspiro  is designed to offer visitors and residents in Lagos world class entertainment. The festival is poised to become a major event on the Lagos and National Tourism calendar and will attract Jazz and contemporary music lovers to the city and by extension Nigeria. The long term goal is still to establish Lagos, Nigeria as a vibrant Jazz Tourism destination alongside cities like Cape Town, Montreal, Montreux, New Orleans, London and Tokyo among others.
This year the Jazz festival is going a step higher by incorporating both the Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM) and International Jazz Day to its program. The National Museum of American History has designated April annually as Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM). In partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities as well as several other national organizations, JAM sponsors a number of programs to promote Jazz, including concerts, lectures, educational materials, and exhibitions. Set up in 2001, Jazz Appreciation Month (JAM) sets out to promote Jazz both as an historical and a contemporary art form. During JAM, schools, concert halls and libraries are encouraged to host events to get local areas interested. Jazz is a celebration of freedom and creativity so parties and dancing are positively encouraged.
