Trondheim Jazz Festival or Jazzfest Trondheim (initiated 1979 in Trondheim, Norway under the name JazzMazz) is an annual music festival held in spring time.
The festival is a continuation of JazzMazz (1979-1994), and changed name to Jazzfest in 1994. It is centered on the Jazz program at NTNU, and the 25th anniversary in 2004 was dedicated to them. The festival is a collaborative arrangement between Trondheim Jazzforum, the venue Blæst, Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, Studentersamfundet i Trondhjem, Dokkhuset and Norsk jazzforum. The first leader was Bjørn Willadsen, followed by Ernst-Wiggo Sandbakk. From 2007 they have been giving the «talentprisen» award, and initiated a long lasting financial cooperation with the NTNU.
