“Halifax music fans are in for a treat this summer,” says HJF executive director Tenille Goodspeed. The waterfront and venues around the city will be bursting with great music. With such a strong lineup already, it is hard to believe we still have more up our sleeves. As always, the Halifax Jazz Festival has something for everyone, with more to come.”
