The 2022 Blue Note Jazz Festival in Napa Valley, marking the first-ever Blue Note Jazz Festival presented as an outdoor, multi-day/multi-stage event, made its unforgettable, sold-out debut this past weekend at Charles Krug Winery in St. Helena, CA. With its electrifying mix of top-tier hip hop, jazz and comedy performances set amid the laid-back beauty of California wine country, the festival provided a unique and intimate experience for its 6,000 attendees.
Today, Blue Note Jazz Festival announces a special Miami Beach Beach Pop Up in partnership with The Rhythm Foundation. Taking place over the first two weekends in June at the North Beach Bandshell, the pop-up will feature headline performances from George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Robert Glasper and special guests, and Buika.
