So, after the 2-year coronavirus situation, in 2023 the Java Jazz Festival is confirmed to come back, in early June. So, prior to its official announcement, let us share the confirmed lineups as well as our prediction of 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!
*FOR THOSE WHO DON'T WANT TO SPEND TIME ON READING ARTICLES* HERE IS OUR CURATORIAL SPOTIFY PLAYLIST THAT INCLUDES THE CONFIRMED AND PREDICTED ARTISTS ON JAVA JAZZ FESTIVAL 2023. IF YOU ARE LAZY TO READ THE ARTICLE, FOLLOW THE PLAYLIST AND PLAY IT ALL THE NIGHT!

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.
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 (Confirmed)
Although the cost that you pay might vary depending on the currency rate, an one-day pass ticket costs 40USD, and there seems no "Three-day-pass option" available this year. They are Special Show Tickets for some invited international artists that costs 11-13 USD per show. The artists that require the special tickets are explained in the later section of this article.
Venue of Java Jazz Festival 2023 (Confirmed)
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.

Artists Lineup of Java Jazz Festival 2023 (Prediction)
Now, it's time to show our insight about rest of 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!
HERE IS OUR CURATORIAL SPOTIFY PLAYLIST THAT INCLUDES THE CONFIRMED AND PREDICTED ARTISTS ON JAVA JAZZ FESTIVAL 2023. IF YOU ARE LAZY TO READ THE ARTICLE, FOLLOW THE PLAYLIST AND PLAY IT ALL THE NIGHT!
Cory Wong (YEAH WE GOT IT!)
Makaya McCraven (YEAH WE GOT IT!)
Nile Rodgers (Chic)
Youn Sun Nah
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!
