Nick Haywood at the Beijing Jazz Festival

The Beijing Jazz Festival (Chinese: ?; pinyin: B?ij?ng Juéshì Y?nyuè Jié) is China's first and largest jazz festival. It was founded in 1993 by Udo Hoffmann, a German national living in China. The festival is hosted by the Beijing Midi School of Music and Beijing Midi Productions.

The festival was held in Beijing from 1993 to 1999, with a seven-year hiatus. The festival returned to Beijing from September 21 to 23, 2007, and has taken place outdoors in Haidian Park, in Beijing's northwestern Haidian District.

The festival features jazz musicians from China and all around the world. Performers have included the U.S. jazz musicians as Wynton Marsalis and Jon Jang, as well as many artists and groups from Scandinavia.
