The Melbourne Jazz Fringe Festival is an annual international jazz festival held in Melbourne, Australia in April or May. The festival was formed in 2005 to celebrate Melbourne’s burgeoning creative jazz scene. Building on the unprecedented success of the 2005, 2006, and 2007 festivals, the festival returns again in 2008 to deliver eleven days and nights of original music featuring Melbourne’s most celebrated improvisers plus interstate guests.

Each year the festival begins in Federation Square on the big outdoor stage with a free concert, continues throughout the week with many innovative events including the Jazz Fringe Commission Concert at BMW Edge, and finally winds up with Big Arse Sunday. ‘Big Arse’ has become one of the ‘not to be missed’ events on Melbourne’s musical calendar.

Major sponsors include Victoria University, Big Trousers, APRA, Federation Square, Arts Victoria 2008.
