All About Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival 2023: Schedule, Ticket Price, Venues and Artist Lineup Prediction!

So, after the 2-year coronavirus situation, in 2023 the Java Jazz Festival is expected to come back to the regular schedule as pre-covid, held anually in early March. So, prior to its official announcement, let's predict when it is held, how much the ticket prices are, and who are going to be on the stages!

Note: this is a mere prediction discussed with some JJF (Java Jazz Festival) lovers who have attended the festival over nearly 10 years. Although we are pretty sure that some information may be true, but some might not be precise and we do not ensure the accuracy of informtion.

Okay, now here we go!

Schedule of Java Jazz Festival 2023 (Confirmed)

Well, this is very simple. Over 10+ years, JJF has been sticking to the first Friday to Sunday in March, except only a few years, such as 2014 (Feb 28 - Mar 2), 2020 (Feb 28 - Mar 1) and 2022 (May 27-29). The exceptions apparenly only apply when the first Friday in March comes to 6 or 7th Mar as they may concern the following rainy season, although the JJF 2022 was technically postponed to May under the severe coronavirus situation in Mar.

So, we are pretty sure that the Java Jazz Fest will be held on 3-5 March 2023. They will come back to the regular schedule, probably, as long as there is no pandemic situation again.

NO! Despite our predictions, they recently announced that they hold the festival 2-4 June this year! Don't get confused and make sure you will not visit Jakarta in early March to enjoy nothing! Be there in the early June!

Ticket Price of Java Jazz Festival 2023 (Prediction)

The ticket prices may change depending on when you purchase, as they have a kind of early-bird campaigns. Also the prices might vary depending on the currency rate as well. But generally, an one-day pass ticket will be sold at nearly 50USD, and a three-day pass would be around 100USD. They might sell special tickets for extra charges, for some invited international artists and it may cost 20-30 USD per show. (These special artists are often tend to be "pop" artists, such as Omar Apollo and Daniel Caesar. If you are mostly insterested in Jazz musician, you can still fully enjoy the festival without purchasing these extra tickets).

Well, it might be a silly question for those who already atended the JJF a few times, but please let me note just in case anyone who has never been to the festival are reading this article. The Jakarta Java Jazz Festival has been always held at Jakarta International Expo (JIEXPO) in Kemayoran, East Jakarta.

Yea, that's a huge venue capable to accomodate the largest audiences out of all the Jazz festival in Asia. There is no alternative, and there was no exception since the JJF has started, so we are very sure that in 2023 they will come back to the JIEXPO again.

Around the venue, there are almost nothing to enjoy. Basically what you need to do is, hire a taxi from/to your hotel and the venue by some local apps and get out of the crowd as soon as the performances finish (otherwise no taxis are left for you) and head right back to your comfy hotel to have some fancy cocktails.

Now, it's time to show our insight about the lineups! Based on the past lineups database, we realised most international artists come to Jakarta with some touring schedule in asian countries, like Singapore, Thailand, Korea, Taiwan and Japan. So we have checked live performance shedule of the well known Jazz venues in those Asian countries and here we get the predicted artists lineup :) Also, this list includes our "desire" as well. There is pretty much bias, but excuse us and let's see the dream festival plan together!

Well, as I previously disclaimed, this refrects our desire a lot! I know JJF doesn't accomodate that many international artists for only 3 days, but we hope some o the artists are on the stages of the JJF in 2023!

Please let us hear your voice if you have any different insights and also any questions are very welcome!
