Kylie Auldist is headlining a free music, food and wine festival in Eltham next month

The festival’s 2020 program will bring over 30 acts to its stages across two days.

After over two decades running, The Eltham Jazz, Food & Wine Festival will return to the suburb’s town centre with the best of local live music, food and drink this February.

This year, the festival will look at the transcendent nature of jazz through a lineup featuring emerging and established acts within the genre. Headed by iconic vocalist Kylie Auldist, alongside the likes of  The Lachy Doley Group, Claude Hay, Geoff Achison Trio, Ogopogo, the festival’s 2020 iteration is destined to be a hit.

With over 30 bands playing across the festival’s three stages, encompassing contemporary and traditional takes on jazz, there is sure to be something for any and every musical taste.

Foodies will also be taken care of, with the festival showcasing locally-produced wine, gin, beer and cider alongside a tantalising offering of gourmet food.
