Entering its 18th year, the Lansing JazzFest is a two-day FREE music festival that brings national, regional, and local acts to an audience of roughly 15,000 people from across Michigan and nearby states.

JazzFest’s music truly is living music, history in the making. Each artist at the festival is asked to play an original composition, something that hasn’t been played at any other festival.

This year’s festival will take place Friday, August 3, and Saturday, August 4, 2012.

This performance schedule is subject to change.
