Elkhart Jazz Fest 2016: Music highlights include Joshua Redman, Dave Bennett, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue

April 27, 2016

The Elkhart Jazz Festival is only two months away, and you can get a taste of the music before the bands roll into town.

We’ve curated a Spotify playlist of returning and featured artists who will perform in Elkhart this year. Joshua Redman and Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue headline the 2016 event, and artists like Dave Bennett, Kris Brownlee and Rebecca Kilgore are returning.

This year’s festival is set for June 24 to 26 in downtown Elkhart. Jazz fans looking for specials on festival tickets need to hustle — the early bird discount can save attendees up to $30 per pass, but the offer ends Saturday. Tickets are available online, in-person at the Lerner Theatre box office, 410 S. Main St. in Elkhart or by calling the Lerner box office at 574-293-4469.
