5th Annual Uptown Latin Jazz Festival

Release Date: 2016-05-02

For the fifth consecutive year, the Uptown Jazz Festival is back!

North Long Beach will feature a taste of southern sounds during its 5th Annual Uptown Jazz Festival, with Goapele and DW3 headlining the show. Goapele, also referred to as the “spiritual love child of Sade and D’Angelo”, has inspired the world with heartfelt songs like "Closer to my Dreams". DW3 tore down the stage at last year's festival, which we hope to expect this time around as well. Check out a recent live performance of theirs, here.

From 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., come out and music, food, vendor booths, a Kids Zone, and much more at this free community event. The free community concert, hosted by Councilmember Rex Richardson, will take place on Saturday, June 11th at Houghton Park. Save the date and share the news!

More acts will be revealed in the forthcoming weeks. RSVP for the 5th Annual Uptown Jazz Festival in order to stay in the loop with updates! If you missed out on last years' Festival, check out some great pictures from the day here.
