This year the Samui Jazz festival has been slightly changed – it is now to celebrate both jazz and latin music. This is not such a big departure since the two genres often cross over.
The festival will be held between 28th September and 6th October. Profits from the events go to the Green Island Foundation who support community projects.
The festival will be held at a number of locations around the island. The main stage is the beachfront at Amari Palm Reef.
Tickets to event cost 500 Thai Baht a person. There are a couple of free concerts on the main stage.
