The idea of Jazz Goes to Campus was started by the plan of student council of FEUI to make an art exhibition that involved students’ creativity and ability. The creativity to perform or the ability to plan an event was welcomed by the student council. The very first Jazz Goes to Campus was held in 1976 on a venue called Taman MIPA. Entertaining roughly 3000 audiences the majority of which is students from Universitas Indonesia, Jazz Goes to Campus has shown its potential since its first held. The very first line up included Indonesian jazz legend such as Ireng Maulana, Jeffrey Tahalele, Oele Pattiselano, Barry Pattiselano, Benny Mustafa, and Jacky Pattiselano.
