About the Festival:

The Bath International Music Festival has an illustrious artistic history and has long been a well-established event of national significance and international reputation, presenting a dynamic mix of world-class performers. The Festival takes place annually over 12 days in late May/early June, and showcases a rich range of high quality events featuring orchestral and classical virtuosos, jazz giants, folk, roots and world musicians, innovative collaborations and unique commissions.

The musicians featured range from international stars such as Willard White and Ute Lemper to emerging younger talent, to students from a wide range of conservatoires, universities and colleges, to local musicians, both professional and amateur.   The programme is supported with films, talks, multi media events, music theatre, exhibitions, dance and site specific projects.  Almost 2000 local performers take part in the Party in the City on the opening Friday evening.  The whole city hosts events and many thousands attend.
