Angel City Jazz Festival Description

Angel City Jazz Festival - Concert | Live Music | Music Festival in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles is known for being on the progressive edge of art and music, and in celebration of the city’s love for innovation and experimentation, the biggest names in jazz come together for the annual Angel City Jazz Festival. Since 2009, jazz icons and emerging young artists have performed for the festival over the course of two weekends in October.

With a symposium on themes like “Metamorphosis: Artists on the Cutting Edge of Change,” the Angel City Jazz Festival celebrates jazz music while pushing the genre forward into new musical territory. Produced by Angel City Arts, the festival seeks to promote and cultivate jazz culture in Los Angeles, and features rising talent alongside living legends. The weekend concerts take place at The Coburn’s School Zipper Hall, the John Anson Ford Amphitheatre, REDCAT, LACMA, and UCLA’s Royce Hall.

This unique festival gives young artists the chance to play alongside their mentors, which translates into great entertainment for audiences. Past Angel City Jazz Festival performers include headlining acts like the Mark Dresser Quintet, Vijay Iyer with Steve Coleman, Myra Melford & Snowy Egret, and the winner of the 2012 Angel City Jazz Young Artist Competition, The Anthony Lucca Quintet.

Tickets to individual performances at the annual Angel City Jazz Festival range from about $35 during an early-bird period up to $70 for VIP seating. After the concerts, help Angel City Arts keep jazz alive in LA by checking out the local scene at the jazz clubs and bars throughout the city.
