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 sixteen 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 28 and 29. A jury will review applications, vet and select bands. Notification of selected bands will begin on April 8 followed by the lineup and schedule announcement on April 30. 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. Click the button below to apply!
