Taking the Stage

The 2018 main stage jazz festival concerts will be held on Wednesday, June 20 through Saturday, June 23 in Rodney Square, with performances starting at 6 p.m. on the weekdays and at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Composer, the producer and multi-instrumentalist Marcus Miller, who has worked with Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Luther Vandross, David Sanborn and others, has been added to Saturday night’s lineup. Miller, whose latest album Laid Black was released June 1, will take the stage at 8:30 p.m.

“The Jazz Festival has become well known and highly anticipated within the United States and around the world,” said Mayor Mike Purzycki. “We are looking forward to welcoming residents and visitors to our main City square—Rodney Square— for some of the best jazz music around.”

Bringing Back the Block

Also returning this year is the Clifford Brown Festival Block Party on Friday night in the 800 block of Market Street from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. with DJ Abstract. Earlier on Friday evening, Philly’s CBS3 will broadcast live from the festival with news anchor and Delaware native Ukee Washington.
