mjf has a reputation for bringing contemporary jazz to the city in exciting, one-off and unmissable events. mjf futures is where you can play a part in helping us do just that.

By donating £500 a year, you’ll be investing in the future of the festival and the very music we programme.

As a festival, we are passionate about commissioning brand new work, showcasing northern bands, nurturing emerging talent and introducing great artists from around the world. We also believe in providing a good number of free gigs each year so our music is accessible to all.

mjf futures provides funding to help realise new concepts and ideas that simply would not happen with the very limited core budget we have.
