Jazz On The Farm is now the favourite jazz festival for many jazz enthusiasts and connoisseurs. Llandudno Jazz Festival officially folded in 2019 - but Jazz On The Farm takes over where it left off, programming the best UK and international modern jazz in a stunning setting. Bodafon Farm Park overlooks Llandudno Bay with commanding views of the sea and the famous Great Orme. For three whole days and nights Jazz On The Farm Festival takes hold of the rustic buildings and Mediterranean courtyards and delivers an unforgettable musical and atmospheric experience. Enjoy great food, real ales, fine wines and rare gins. Camp on site, or stay in one of the hundreds of excellent hotels and B&Bs Llandudno is famous for. Hear you favourite jazz musicians, and discover talented new faces you wouldn't have known about, as they perform in some familiar, and some brand new line-ups. With resident favourites like the Dave Newton Trio and host Alan Barnes, and never-before seen projects and commissions, JOTF presents a diverse and compelling programme from dawn til dusk! Paying tribute to the legends or pushing the boundaries of the artform, JOTF delivers the very best weekend of real jazz with a roaring mission statement - NO COMPROMISE!!

ABOUT Jazz On The Farm
As Artistic Director of Llandudno Jazz Festival for 5 years I am pleased to announce the continuation of a full weekend all-jazz festival at Bodafon Farm Park, Llandudno, presenting the best British and international jazz in a stunning location, under the new name:
"Jazz On The Farm".
- NEIL YATES
I will continue to programme the UK's favourite festival for Modern Jazz fans, presenting the best UK and international jazz artists in a relaxed and atmospheric setting. Jazz On The Farm will continue to bring unique jazz projects featuring all our favourite players, as well as offering excellent food, ales and wines, ample nearby hotel accommodation, camping on site, and stunning views across Llandudno Bay to The Great Orme - and this year, quite possibly, a fairer climate, thanks to our new calendar dates in June (well, one can only hope!)
