The City of Derry Jazz Festival is to welcome the return of one of the biggest names in Irish music – Van Morrison – to headline this year’s event.
Tickets are now on sale for the night of music on Sunday, May 10, at the Millennium Forum, where Van has received a rapturous reception at previous Festival gigs.
The City of Derry Jazz Festival will be returning for the 19th time this year, with a packed programme of events taking place over five days from May 7-11 expected to draw upwards of 70,000 people to the city.
