Full headline concert available on YouTube, Friday 24th November, 8pm


Another magnificent year! Once again, the Gypsy Jazz Festival of London sold out iconic venues across the UK capital, and featured some of the worlds best musicians of the style. The festival was featured in The Guardian as well as on Prime Time JazzFM, Syncopated Times, JazzViews and Jazz Guitar Today.

Thanks to everyone who attended the concerts, to the bands, and to the venues for helping the 2023 edition of GJFL turn out a storming success.

We have exciting plans for next year and look forward to growing again. We welcome a larger team, special venue partnerships and some hugely well known bands and musicians! Stay tuned @gjflondon

GJFL 2023 is here! Over the first week of may some of the worlds best jazz and gypsy jazz musicians converge on the big smoke for London's festival dedicated to the jazz style pioneered by Django Reinhardt. 

This year we return to Crazy Coq's Soho and Vortex Jazz Club, but welcome LSO St Luke's and Jago Dalston to the family. 

We're delighted that this year will again be supported by Arts Council England. We are a not for profit festival and the team is built of working musicians who play and love the genre. The 2022 edition sold out across the board and we can't wait to see everyone again, and hopefully meet some new friends.
