Join us outside on the plaza at Playhouse Square June 26 and 27 when local and regional bands take to the Strassman Insurance Stage. We also have plenty of food and beverage options, shopping, U.S. Bank Kids Club, street performers, games, Saturday morning yoga, dancing under the GE Chandelier and so much more.
You won't want to miss the festival this year! Stay tuned for the full schedule in the coming months.
Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland is seeking local and regional bands (jazz, blues, R&B, funk, jam, reggae) to perform this year on the Strassman Insurance Stage at Playhouse Square from 3 p.m. to midnight June 26 and 27. A jury will review applications, vet and select bands. Notification of selected bands will begin in May followed by the lineup and schedule announcement early June. Schedule is subject to change.
Tri-C JazzFest pays union scale. Musicians will be paid individually by check, not by band. Sets run 40-45 minutes with short change overs. No sound checks, line checks only. We provide one parking pass per band, water, drums, keyboard (no piano), B-3 and complete sound system.
Applications are now closed. Anyone who has already applied will be notified via email in the coming weeks with additional information.
