The Detroit Jazz Festival is the world’s largest free jazz festival over Labor Day Weekend, starting September 1 through September 4. Robert McCabe and the Detroit Renaissance founded the Detroit International Jazz Festival in 1980. Along with the Detroit Grand Prix and the International Freedom Festival, the Festival was intended to bring people into the city and to provide all segments of the population with world-class entertainment. The festival takes place over several venues with five stages and 100 acts. This family-friendly event is the perfect activity to enjoy Labor Day Weekend. WEMU 89.1 is also being honored with a tribute to their 40 years of jazz broadcasting on Saturday, September 2, 2017.
Going into it’s 38th year, this year’s lineup features a wide range of performances including Regina Carter, Wayne Shorter Quartet, Miles Mosley and The West Coast Get Down, Herbie Hancock, George “Sax” Benson, Billy Childs Quartet: Rebirth, Henry Butler & the Jambalaya Band, Ket Edmonson, Kamasi Washington, Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet, and many more.
