Main Festival : Upton Jazz Association is a charity and one of our purposes is to spread the word about jazz, encouraging a diverse range of jazz talent to our annual event in June each year.  Rachel, our Musical Director puts the final touches to the programme in September/October each year, and we welcome and acknowledge bands and performers who are interested in appearing at the festival. Contact bands@uptonjazz.co.uk

Fringe : Our Fringe performance stage, this year at the Swan Hotel right on the riverside, offers opportunities for up and coming talent to come and perform in a festival setting. Please get in touch, ideally with a brief summary of who you are and what you sound like, a couple of photos and some music/SoundCloud/youtube etc links. Contact info@uptonjazz.co.uk

Spreading the Word : we are happy to find ways of promoting you, your event, your band, your latest CD. We can do this through our website, our regular e-news, radio play with the help of our partner Alun Jones at Longside Radio www.longsideradio.co.uk, or at the festival itself. All we ask is that you offer to do the same for us, in whatever way you can. Thank you.
