2019 brochure:

2020 festival dates: 9 – 11 October 2020.


Using this form enables submissions to be reviewed by a distributed team. CDs cost you money to make and post. They make if more difficult for our reviewers to listen to your music. They have to be disposed of after use. If you only have physical promotional materials, please consider getting yourself a Bandcamp or Soundcloud account.

If you still want to send a CD, please post to Barney Stevenson, Artistic Director, Marsden Jazz Festival, Marsden Mechanics Hall, Peel Street, Marsden, Huddersfield HD7 6BW, UK.
