Lansing JazzFest 2015 is two day festival of free, live performances of often new and rare jazz music. This is the artists who play Lansing JazzFest are asked to play something original or that at least hasn’t been played at any other festival, making the Lansing Jazzfest truly unique: living music and history in the making.
Local, regional, and even national acts come to Lansing each year to participate and thousands more come to hear them!
Lansing JazzFest 2015 will be held in the streets of Lansing’s Old Town, amidst the classic architecture of the Capital City as well as its attendant art galleries and boutiques of unique retail goods, most of which stay open for the festival. Street vendors will be on hand with delicious food and refreshing drink while local artisans will display their one-of-a-kind, handmade arts and crafts.
One of the best options for enjoying Lansing JazzFest is The Turnaround Lounge – a prime location to enjoy music from both main stages during the festival, as well as the premium beers, ciders, and wines made available by Westside Beer Distributors. A seat in the Turnaround Lounge is only $5 a day – but the perks are priceless. Get your ticket for the Lansing JazzFest Turnaround Lounge now before they sell out!
