The largest jazz festival in the Southern Hemisphere takes place on one of the smaller islands in the Pacific. Java, the capital and most populous island of Indonesia—a trans-continental country comprised of a chain of islands—hosts the Jakarta International Java Jazz Festival (often called just Java Jazz).

In fact, as one of the largest jazz festivals in the world, Java Jazz features more than a dozen stages with live music, with more than 1,000 musicians, many of whom call the South Pacific home. Java Jazz tends to highlight Indonesian artists—as Jakarta is an enormous cultural hub—although previous years’ lineups have also included everything from American pop stars, and Japanese ska punks to Nigerian saxophonists and Broadway-style stage performers. 2016’s rendition attracted upwards of 120,000 visitors.

On any year, the international artist spread can feature names like American jazz-rock band Blood Sweat & Tears, jazz-fusion pianist Chick Corea, Cuban trumpeter Arturo Sandoval, Italian-born, New York City-based pianist and vocalist Diana Schaechter, and English singer/songwriter/arranger/pianist Anthony Strong. Additionally, larger ensembles like the Jazz Orchestra of the Concertgebouw (the jazz group from the famed eponymous Amsterdam venue) have played multiple times. On the other end of the spectrum, you’ll find an act like the U.K.-based experimental Renegade Brass Band, comprised of eight horn players, two percussionists, a scratch DJ and live MC.

The complete lineup is to find here. Notable smooth jazz artists are the Bob James Trio, Harvey Mason featuring Dira Sugandi, Nathan East Band of Brothers, Peter White, Ron King Big Band.
