Thanks for your post, it's good to hear that you're considering Ireland as part of your 2019 tour. I would highly recommend the City of Derry Jazz and Big Band Festival for 2019. This is one of the most popular annual events in our city as the 2018 festival featured artists from all over the world and welcomed more than 60,000 revellers over the bank holiday weekend. The 2019 City of Derry Jazz and Big Band Festival will take place from 2nd – 6th May and further details on this amazing event can found here
The event is organised by the local Derry City and Strabane District Council. I would recommend contacting the council if you show further interest in the festival. The contact details for the council are as follows:

Furthermore, if you require assistance in relation to this event or the Walled City of Derry-Londonderry, then please do not hesitate to contact us directly.
