Cape Town is gearing up for an economic boost as the acclaimed Cape Town International Jazz Festival (CTIJF) makes its anticipated return this weekend after a three-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now in its 21st year, the festival themed "Reset, Connect and Revive Your Rhythm" is expected to attract thousands of visitors and reignite the city's hospitality, retail, and tourism industries.

"The event has historically generated around 3,000 or more additional income opportunities and jobs," said CTIJF spokesperson Kaz Henderson. "Audiences can look forward to four stages and 30 artists, mixing local talents like Judith Sephuma and Mi Casa with international acts like Moonchild."

With a lineup celebrating jazz and jazz-adjacent genres, Henderson promises "something for everyone" at the globally respected festival. Cape Town Tourism CEO Enver Duminy hailed the festival's return as an exhilarating prospect to revive the Mother City's vibrant cultural scene and deliver substantial economic benefits across multiple sectors.
