Herne Hill Music Festival has sadly had to cancel Jazz-Factor, elimination Round 1, which would have taken place very soon, for lack of community uptake. In a schedule shakeup, the Festival has decided that to run this as a competition is not feasible in 2013. The semi-finals planned for September will also be cancelled with a view to converting the Finals previously set for October into a 'Jazz-Factor Showcase' and to build for 2014. Showcase dateline is Oct 18th. Stay tuned for more info as it happens.
