Cape Town – Organisers of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival have announced that the artist schedule for this year's festival has changed.

Grammy award-winning singer and actress Jill Scott, who was set to perform as the headline act on Friday 5 April, will now be performing on Saturday 6 April.

Other changes include Buena Vista Social Club who will be performing on Friday as well as on Saturday.

Scott, who had to withdraw from last year's festival due to filming commitments, will still be performing on the Kippies Main Stage.

Free concert

Almost 40 acts from 12 different countries, ranging from jazz aficionadas such as guitarist Norman Brown and violinist Jean-Luc Ponty to hip hop legend Brother Ali, have been confirmed for the 2013 Cape Town International Jazz Festival.

Capetonians can once again look forward to a free concert in Green Market Square on Wednesday 3 April from 17:00 to 23:00, featuring UK acid jazz group the Brand New Heavies as well as local acts such as Jimmy Dludlu.

The festival will take place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) on 4 and 5 April. It will be the 14th annual instalment of what has become a major beacon on the international music festival calendar.
