Jazz by the Bay Festival

Co-founder, Creative Director – 2013-2020

Jazz by The Bay Festival (Inc) developed from humble beginnings in 2013 to become the fourth largest regional jazz festival in Australia. During this time, it attracted a significant local and national audience. It enabled many local performers to showcase their talents to a wider audience and attracted the engagement of national and international artists who relished the opportunity to perform in such an idyllic environment.

Over its nine years this unique festival was imagined, developed and curated by Currant Event Principal, Cindy Wiese.

A highly anticipated four days of jazz, soul and funk music were held across wineries, galleries, restaurants, caves, beaches and pubs.  Offering bespoke pairings of world class music with gourmet food and exquisite wines for which the region is famed.

Supported by major partners; City of Busselton, South West Development Commission, Tourism Western Australia and Lotterywest.
