The Atlanta Jazz Festival is regarded as one of the largest free jazz festivals in the country, annually celebrating jazz music, iconic legends, and up-and-coming artists! The three-day festival will take over Piedmont Park from May 27 to May 29 — however, the fun doesn’t stop there. On top of the free festival, venues will be holding special events and concerts in collaboration with the festival throughout the entire month of May!
There’s an incredible line-up for the Atlanta Jazz Festival, featuring some fantastic jazz artists. You can catch Brandee Younger, Tony Hightower and so many more show-stopping performers at the free-of-charge Atlanta Jazz Festival, soon to take over Piedmont Park.
For concert-goers who are seeking a more private viewing experience, the Jazz Spot provides unparalleled views of the stage. Offering a private ready-upon-arrival tent, the area overlooks the Piedmont Park meadow and comes with 10 wristbands (be sure to bring your own chairs or tables)!
Those looking to further elevate their experience can reserve the Jazz Spot Premium, a private tent directly next to the stage complete with a table and chairs, swag bags, access to a cash bar and restroom trailer, and more.
If you are interested in prolonging the fun, there will be a 10pm late night show at The Piedmont Room at Park Tavern Introducing Cecily, a skilled Jazz and 90’s R&B vocalist and songwriter with a breathtaking soprano voice. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to see her live!
Plus, right before the three-day event, the Atlanta Jazz Festival will host The Blues and Its People, a powerful one-night-only concert featuring uplifting Blues, Jazz, and Gospel music. Guests can expect to see performances from Russell Gunn and the 26-piece Royal Krunk Jazz Orkestra, among other skilled musicians. This concert will take place at the Apollo Theater on May 26 at 8pm.
