Artists slated to perform include vocalist Gregory Porter, the Robert Glasper Experiment, guitarist Pat Metheny, saxophonist Kenny Garrett and more.


In addition, the DC Jazz Festival will offer masterclasses and a number of special events. One of these events will be “Jazz ‘n Families Fun Days,” a family friendly weekend (June 3-4) that will feature storytelling, unique meet-the-artist opportunities, an instrument petting zoo, art workshops and more. Another will be “Jazz in the ‘Hoods,” which will present young, boundary-breaking musicians in alternative venues, as well as DC-based musicians grounded in the jazz tradition, throughout the festival.
