25 October - 7 November 2010. Founded in 1996 by the Musical Society of Nigeria, the MUSON Festival has become a major annual event on the Lagos artistic calendar.

The festival, which features international and local acts, has in recent years become dominated by jazz music, the highlight of which is Jazz Night.

Organisers hope to eventually transform the event into an annual jazz festival, similar to that of Cape Town. In addition to jazz, the festival presents two evenings of piano recitals by a visiting British pianist, a children's concert, an art exhibition, two short plays, two classical music concerts and various Nigerian traditional music and dance productions.

The Musical Society of Nigeria was established in 1983 and promotes a greater appreciation of music as well as providing musical training for children in Nigeria.
