JZ Spring 2019 will be held at Shanghai Centre Theatre from April 29-May 2. The four-day music fest is the perfect way to spend a day (or four) outdoors while enjoying tons of great music and plenty of entertaining, family-friendly activities.
The 6th annual festival will feature over a hundred local and international jazz musicians including some big names such as Laura Fygi, John Daversa and Journey drummer Steve Smith. Artists will play across multiple stages during the multiday festival. Ranging from blues to funk, it’s a diverse and impressive lineup that’ll turn any pair of ordinary sneakers into dancing shoes. In addition, all of the outdoor performances will be free to the public.
