Gregory Porter, Chandra Currelley, Joi, and The Russell Gunn Quartet are just a few of the artists who will be appearing at this year’s Atlanta Jazz Festival Memorial Day Weekend May 27-29 at historic Piedmont Park.

“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.”
