San Jose Jazz Summer Fest

August 11 –13, 2017 (Friday – Sunday)

San Jose Jazz Festival Main Stage
Post St & S 1st St,
San Jose, California 95113

Northern California’s hottest event of the summer features a lineup of international stars, emerging artists and regional favorites playing jazz, blues, salsa, Latin and R&B. It’s more than the biggest live music event in Silicon Valley—it’s the perfect summer experience with tasty food, wine and microbrews; family fun; and an after-hours club crawl.

This year’s headliners include Chris Botti, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Angelique Kidjo with Pedrito Martinez, Robert Glasper Experiment, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Maceo Parker and dozens more. Summer Fest presents the largest celebration of Latin jazz and salsa found on the West Coast including Daymé Arocena, Oscar Hernández and Alma Libre, Pacific Mambo Orchestra and Jimmy Bosch. The Blues/Big Easy stage brings it home with Samantha Fish and Big Sandy and his Fly Rite Boys. Our Jazz Beyond programming, which explores where jazz is going, features The Seshen and Robert Glasper Experiment.

Cost: $70 - $100 / 3-days
