Renowned as one of the best jazz festivals in Europe, this year's line-up featured an electric line-up including The Coronas, Gary Numan, and Marcus Miller.

Now in its 37th year, the festival has attracted some of the biggest names in jazz including Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie and Chick Corea.

The event will come to a thunderous finish tonight at the city's opera house with a performance by Motown legends the Drifters.

Country director for Guinness's parent company Diageo, Oliver Loomes said: "The excitement surrounding the festival is palpable as soon as you arrive in the city. It's great to see so many people."
