All About Jazz hosts over 300 local Jazz Near You webpages in towns and cities around the world. With All About Jazz Polls, we're using our global reach to document the opinion of each and every member to determine which truly are the best venues, the best festivals, and the best record labels. Our polls are reflective of a cross-section of people from various geographic locations and as a result, will prove to be the most definitive of their kind.
Some All About Jazz readers travel far and wide to see great jazz, so our polls were developed to let you vote for any venue or festival in the world.
There are a lot of great venues, festivals and labels out there, so we allow you to select up to five of each when casting your vote. Voting is tightly regulated and your vote cannot be altered or duplicated. AAJ polls have the full integrity of a verified election, so make your voice heard. VOTE and watch the numbers grow in real time as each vote is cast. Poll results are published as annual "Best Of" lists and will give the industry a clear guide to what you, the member and voter, prefer most.
Venue and festival representatives are encouraged to spread the word about our polls to their social networks and mailing lists. Just point them to this page and encourage them to vote.
All About jazz continuously evolves with the music, and our polls were designed to give voice to your opinion on the best jazz has to offer while defining a series of benchmarks for the industry.
You can participate in our polls. Just sign up or sign in, then view our open polls here.
