2013 Iowa City Jazz Festival Sneak Peak

A winter's day with snow, ice and fog is the perfect time to daydream about cool jazz on a hot summer day!

We were able to sneak an advance look at the lineup for the Iowa City Jazz Festival, July 5-7, and it's a good one!

Buy your sunscreen in bulk now while it's cheap, because you'll want to spend every moment of the entire three days where you can hear these great artists.

Friday, July 5
  • United Jazz Ensemble
  • Laranja
  • Sachal Vasandani with the Iowa Jazz Orchestra
Saturday, July 6
  • North Corridor All-Stars
  • Charlie Hunter/Scott Amedola
  • Christian Scott Quintet
  • Dr. Lonnie Smith
Sunday, July 7
  • Phillip Dizack Quartet
  • JD Allen Trio
  • Fred Hersch Trio
  • Pharoah Sanders
This lineup is pretty solid, but sometimes things change between January and July, so watch this space and also the Summer of the Arts website for the latest news.

The Jazz Festival lineup, including an excellent slate of side stage performers, along with the full schedule of Summer of the Arts 2013 events will be officially announced on March 26th.
