On Thursday the 28th of November 2013, the biggest, most anticipated music festival – Lagos Jazz Series is set to commence with its 4th Edition.
This year’s edition is packed tight with an interesting blend of artists both home-based and international such as Marcus Miller, Antibalas, Nduduzo, Mi Casa, Black Magic, Efya, M.I., Olamide, Phyno, Show Dem Camp and more.

Spinning daily at the park are 4 World DJs – Jerome Sydenham (Germany), Rich Medina (Philadelphia), Radio Slave (Germany) and D.J Caise (Nigeria).
This year’s line-up has witnessed a few changes. Due to unavoidable scheduling conflicts, Jill Scott and Pat Metheny will not be at this year’s festival. We do however look forward to having them at subsequent festivals.
