Johannesburg & the Joy of Jazz

Join fellow jazz music fans with a 2-day pass to the 2018 Standard Bank Joy of Jazz festival while staying in upscale Sandton.

About Your Trip

On this DreamTrip for guests ages 21 years and older, come together with music lovers from all over the world to hear smooth jazz sounds by renowned national and international performers. You’ll relish your 2 days at Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, home of the Standard Bank Joy of Jazz festival — now in its 21st year, it’s the longest-running jazz music festival in South Africa.

The 2018 edition includes “The Horn Summit,” an all-star local tribute to the late, great Hugh Masekela, featuring fellow horn players from across South Africa. Other highlights include the unique Spanish singer Buika, the legendary saxophonist David Sanborn, and a magical vocalist from the Zulu Kingdom, Mbuso Khoza, among other amazing performers. From solo and group acts to up-and-coming and seasoned artists, this festival offers something for everyone.

Use your free time to shop at Sandton City shopping center — only 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from the hotel. Other popular attractions include the Carlton Centre’s observation deck, the Johannesburg Zoo and the Cradle of Humankind, a UNESCO World Heritage site where nearly one-third of the known early hominid fossils have been found.

What we love:
• You can take in shows by jazz artists from across the continent and get a fresh, different perspective on the African experience.
• With its towering skyscrapers and premier shopping and entertainment, the affluent Sandton area not only resembles Manhattan, but serves as South Africa’s Wall Street.
• To say Johannesburg is an eco-friendly city is a huge understatement — it contains the largest man-made urban forest in the world.
