The festival first started in 2006 and was held at the Pavilion, Parkcity Everly Hotel Miri, Sarawak, Malaysia. It was then known as the Miri International Jazz Festival. Since then it has been its home to date. In 2011, the name was changed to Borneo Jazz, capitalizing on the magical name of ‘Borneo’. In 2018 the festival moves to Coco Cabana for the first time.
The festival is slotted to be held on the second weekend of May every year. This year it will be held over 3 days from 11 – 13 May, 2018.
