Today at Media Reception, held at the Sutton Place Hotel,
Announcements made include:


NEW! Viewing Screens


This year we are enhancing the site to include a 9'x12'LED screen (furnished by Re-Top Displays) adjacent to the Georgia Stage at Downtown Jazz and adjacent to the David Lam Park Main Stage that will provide a greater viewing experience for audiences by projecting close ups of the performers on stage. Through the screens audiences will be invited to participate in Social Media events and other cool things between the shows.


Sat. June 21 + Sun. June 22


"The Downtown Jazz Weekend is now one of the most anticipated events within the Jazz Festival" notes Media Director and Co-Founder of the Festival, John Orysik. "Everything from the cool site design to the exceptional calibre of artists, to the thrilling vibe generated by large, enthusiastic audiences speaks to the success of the Festival's capacity to animate the heart of our city."

NEW! TIME (Tonal Interactive Media Experiment)

Also new this year is TIME (Tonal Interactive Media Experiment) at the ice rink level - Robson Square. TIME is an interactive installation designed to explore some of the more innovative uses of the guitar effects pedal. These tactile and enticing machines are a clear link between the themes of sonic and visual art. Developed in collaboration with Creative BC and the British Columbia Arts Council.

Fun for the whole Family

Kids Zone will move from the ice rink level to the vacated Howe Street Bistro location and will provide families convenient access to food trucks, a sitting area, the artisan market and level access to stages on either side of the Art Gallery.

Families can also participate in all kinds of activities at the Family Zone or relax at the TD Comfort Zone.

The Howe Street Bistro will relocate to Robson Street to allow our bistro patrons the ability to watch live entertainment on the Robson Stage while relaxing and enjoying refreshments.

NEW! Silent Dance Party

Those in the mood can shake it up with our rotating DJs during the Silent Dance Party presented by Sennheiser.
