Foyle Sinn Féin MP Elisha McCallion said
“Congratulations to Derry City and Strabane District Council for another amazing Jazz and Big Band festival.
“This festival goes from strength to strength every year, and whilst I might be a little biased, I would safely say it’s one of the BEST festivals in Ireland.
“Derry has once again shown its ability to be able to host major music festivals and the success of this festival highlights what can be achieved with a vision and perseverance.
It gives a much needed boost to the hospitality, retail, and tourism sectors and is a great showcase for our wonderful city.
