The Cape Town International Jazz Festival (CTIJF) will go ahead as planned, despite artist Abdullah Ibrahim withdrawing from his planned performance. CTIJF management has been informed that his decision was taken in light of concerns around travelling, due to the Coronavirus.

We respect the decision taken by the artist and the Cape Town International Jazz Festival remains committed to bringing the best in jazz and jazz-related music to the Mother City. The Festival will be going ahead as planned on 27 and 28 March 2020 and we will announce a suitable replacement as soon as possible,” says Festival Director Billy Domingo.
