Artist submissions will be used for the programming of the 2021 TD Edmonton international Jazz Festival as well as other year-round programming currently being discussed.

How we are able to celebrate all things jazz in 2021 is still yet to be confirmed but definitely a work in progress. Much of it will depend on health and safety guidelines put forward by our local and Federal health officials and as we all know, anything and everything is subject to change. We ask for your patience and understanding through this process and encourage you to keep playing and stay safe.

We will do our best to keep everyone up-to-date on our plans and changes as they occur. Please check back here and follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) for update.


Submissions will always be under review for various projects and the application will remain open. If a hard deadline is required, it will be posted in our updates and shared through social media. 

Note To 2021 Summer Festival Hopefuls:

  • International and Canadian touring acts being considered will be contacted in January/February 2021. 
  • Edmonton/Alberta-based acts being considered will be contacted in February/March/April 2021.

Due to the high volume of submissions, only those selected for consideration will be contacted. Please do not inquire about the status of your application by phone or email.
