Newport Jazz Festival Announces 2024 Lineup Featuring André 3000, Elvis Costello, Brittany Howard, and more!

This summer the Newport Jazz Festival will return to Fort Adams State Park in Rhode Island to celebrate a major milestone – the iconic cultural institution’s 70th Anniversary. One of the longest running and most storied festivals in America will return August 2-4 where it will continue to host once in a lifetime performances that only Newport’s unique alchemy of intimacy and artistic community can bring. Fans and artists alike return each year to this hallowed ground to experience the joy of this Festival’s long running tradition of diversity, discovery and artistic virtuosity. Newport Jazz Festival is produced by the Newport Festival Foundation in collaboration with Newport Jazz Artistic Director Christian McBride.

Today, this year’s remarkable line up has been unveiled and will feature a number of legendary artists including Sun Ra Arkestra, Elvis Costello, Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Bill Frisell, Stanley Clarke and Galactic with icon Irma Thomas. Amazing young jazz vocalist Laufey will make her return to the festival, and André 3000, spoken word artist Aja Monet and Brittany Howard will all perform on Jazz Weekend for the first time. Terrace Martin, Robert Glasper and Kamasi Washington will each play their own set and together in their collaborative project – Dinner Party. Other all-star ensembles include Danilo Perez, John Patitucci, Terri Lyne Carrington and Ravi Coltrane honoring the Legacy of Wayne Shorter and Newport Jazz Artistic Director Christian McBride will assemble an all-star cast for his annual Jam Jawn. The full line-up is listed below.
