One of the busiest times of year for Horizon’s at Peregian is the Noosa Jazz Festival (1st-4th Sept 2011). We are proud to be supporters of this event and often host musicians, artists and performers at our popular resort. The festival is open to all Noosa visitors as well as local residents to enjoy the constant stream of open-air performances, historical jazz feature-shows and daily free gigs to experience the huge variety of jazz these talented musicians have to offer. This year will mark 19 years of bringing the very best of Australian and International Jazz talent to the beautiful Noosa Heads. 2011’s theme is ‘Jazz Party’’, and the Noosa region will host iconic musicians fusing together the traditional sounds of Jazz within the Bicentennial Hall, followed by swing, modern, funk and blues along Hastings Street and in the Festival Village. It is a superb ambience to enjoy fine wine and elegant foods with a backdrop of ocean sounds This year’s festival welcomes back artists who are the ‘back bone’ of the Australian jazz scene, Bob Barnard, Allan Browne, Dan Barnett, Geoff Bull and George Golla, amongst many others. Noosa is blessed with pristine beaches, beautiful national parkland and a magnificent river, but when the jazz festival comes to town, jazz lovers can enjoy one of the most unique holidays imaginable.
The Festival was originally created to celebrate the start of Spring, a plays an important role in attracting tourists to the region who are looking for an escape from the winter climate. From humble beginnings of one restaurant, the festival today boasts over 90 performances in multiple venues along the infamous Hastings Street strip, a large purpose built jazz stage in Noosa Woods overlooking the beautiful Noosa River, Bicentennial Hall, which is the home of the Noosa Jazz Club and venues all the way to Noosaville come alive to the great sound of jazz music every year. Today, the festival has grown from a community event to a sophisticated celebration of jazz which is a respected festival attracting thousand’s of jazz lovers to South East Queensland.
