On Tuesday, April 5th, details about the 2016 Atlanta Jazz Festival were announced at a press conference at Atlanta City Hall with Mayor Kasim Reed.

“We are excited about the lineup for this year’s Atlanta Jazz Festival,” says Camille Russell Love, Executive Director of the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs. “As our city becomes more international and our population younger, we are booking the festival to welcome these new audiences.  From the soulful groove of Gregory Porter, the hip-hop inspired brass of Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, and the sensuous stylings of Brazilian songstress Eliane Elias, we’ve got a wide variety of jazz flavors on three stages. And admission is free! Make plans now to join us for the 39th Annual Atlanta Jazz Festival in Piedmont Park over Memorial Day Weekend, May 27-29.”
