Jazz fans, get ready for the event of the year! Arizona Jazz Festival is returning for its 2024 edition, promising to be the best smooth jazz experience in the United States.

This spring, the festivities will take to the High Street stage from March 22 to 24, inviting fans to immerse themselves in a weekend brimming with soulful melodies and rhythmic bliss.

The open-air venue of High Street, 5310 E. High St., in Phoenix, offers the perfect mix of comfort and flair for a memorable jazz experience. Attendees can look forward to reserved seating arrangements, leaving behind the hassle of crowded general admission sections. This outdoor setting, complete with all the amenities for a jazz extravaganza, means you can leave your chairs and coolers at home and simply bask in the smooth tunes.

With over 20 acts, Arizona Jazz Fest’s lineup cements the event’s reputation for diversity and quality. Festivalgoers will groove to the smooth sounds of renowned artists like Michael Lington and Phoenix’s own Vaughn Willis. The stage will also shine with performances by R&B legends Babyface and En Vogue, jazz greats Boney James and Tower of Power, and the contemporary mastery of artists like LeVelle and Rebecca Jade, ensuring a weekend full of unforgettable performances.

Arizona Jazz Fest will tantalize more than just your auditory senses; it’s a full sensory experience with an assortment of food and beverage options. From gourmet food choices to a beverage selection that includes crafted mojitos, margaritas, a handpicked wine list, and whiskies.
Back by popular demand and reflecting the festival’s growing success, new sections have been added to accommodate the jazz-loving crowds. A special three-day pass is available at $95/day, offering limited quantities for those who don’t want to miss a beat.

With no strict dress code, attendees are encouraged to dress comfortably yet chic, reflecting the smooth jazz and R&B vibes. Light layers, hats, and sunglasses are recommended for protection against the elements, ensuring that the focus remains on the music and the experience.

For those driving to the festival, the designated parking lot offers no additional cost for attendees.
