SUVA City and Pacific Harbour will be the venues for the Fiji International Jazz & Blues Festival this year.

Beginning on May 1, venues at the two centres will showcase outstanding local and international talent over four days.

Headliner for this year's show is Australian music icon Renee Geyer.

Apart from being internationally recognised as a singer and songwriter in her own right, Geyer has also rubbed shoulders with the music elite including Stevie Wonder, Sting, Joe Cocker and Chaka Khan.

Her biggest hit in terms of airplay in the country was the 1981 single off the album So Lucky titled Say I Love You.

Festival director and renowned New Zealand blues guitarist Billy TK Junior said the third annual Fiji Airways-sponsored event was progressively stamping its authority as the premier music event in the region.
