Over the years, Lagos Jazz Series has taken place in different locations across Lagos, mainly on the island.
Lagos Jazz Series traditionally seeks to mix different venues for its annual events, incorporating High End Hotel spaces (like Waterside area of Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island & Poolside Moor House Hotel, Ikoyi) to create a relaxed but impressive occasion for the first Audience.
By pioneering the use of Muri Okunola Park for late afternoon evening shows, Lagos Jazz Series has been able to create a chilled, “festival-like” occasion that is family friendly during the afternoon, and gradually blending into the perfect outdoor experience for the second target audience into the evening.
The festival area would be more relaxed for picnics and ‘al fresco’ eating and drinking to enable the audience and even children to wander round listening to the live music and taking in possible peripheral events. Rugs and mats are provided for the audience.
As the evening progresses the audience tends to stand and gather round the front of the stage for the major artists performance.
There are also grand opportunities for franchise and concession bars and snack/fast food outlets around the venue. These would be both pre-purchased and payment “at the Gate” tickets.
