History

The Hampton Jazz fest has now been running for over 45 years (est. 1968) and has hosted pretty much every great Jazz, pop, blues and soul artist you can think. The festival is run in partnership with the City of Hampton and Hampton University.

Initially it was started to celebrate Hampton Universities 100th birthday and was only intended as a ‘one-off’ festival on the Universities own campus. Since it’s launch, the festival has continued in order to please it’s growing demand and now tens of thousands of people come from all over the world for a few days in June to celebrate and enjoy music together.
