The 2020 edition of the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival runs from 17 to 26 July inclusive. 

We are already accepting submissions by Scottish based musicians.

For all other musicians interested in submitting their proposals, submissions open on 1 November 2019 to beginning of March 2020.

Please note that we do NOT accept applications via Social Media or postal submissions

Due to volume of submissions, we will be in touch ONLY if we’re able to make an offer.

In earlier years a number of false offers were sent to musicians purporting to come from the Festival – please note that we will NEVER ask you to pay anything in advance and any emails that ask you to do this are not from us.

With best wishes - the Festival team
