The Detroit International Jazz Festival, founded in 1980 by Robert McCabe and the Detroit Renaissance. Along with the Detroit Grand Prix and the International Freedom Festival, Jazz Fest was intended to bring people into the city and to provide all segments of the population with world-class entertainment. It quickly became a Labor Day Weekend tradition at Hart Plaza, a city park along the Detroit River designed by Isamu Noguchi and Shuji Sadao.

This year’s festival kicks off on Friday, Aug. 29th, providing music lovers with one-of-a-kind performances from a variety of artists and ensembles throughout the weekend.  This year’s headliners include David Murray Big Band with Macy Gray, the Ahmad Jamal Quartet, Joshua Redman, Charles Lloyd, McCoy Tyner, John Scofield Überjam Band, the Alan Broadbent Trio and 2013 Artist in Residence Danilo Pérez.

“Each year we work harder than the last to make the Detroit Jazz Festival an experience that adds to the cultural fabric of this region and this music. Our lineup features incredible artists, free of charge, who will once again make this a can’t-miss event,” said Gretchen Valade, chair of the Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation. “The rich culture of jazz history in Detroit lives on through the Festival this Labor Day weekend and all year with the many activities we do to keep this spirit alive. This is really about what Detroit and this music have to offer the world.”
