30th Annual Bakersfield "Rite of Spring"

General info

30th Annual Bakersfield Jazz Festival will be a 2-day outdoor celebration at the CSU Bakersfield Amphitheatre. There will be 11 to 12 groups on two stages, including Grammy and poll winning artists, jazz icons, innovative young lions, and party starters. The festival is scheduled on May 6 and 7, 2016. The Bakersfield Jazz Festival began with Dizzy Gillespie and has previously featured Dianne Reeves, David Sanborn, Bela Fleck, Dave Douglas, Poncho Sanchez, and Christian McBride among hundreds of other artists and has given over half a million dollars in scholarships. Known as Bakersfield’s “Rite of Spring,” the festival traditionally features musical variety with “Big Ears,” a dance move or two, and a fireworks show before the music closes the festivities.  Performing artists for 2016 are on Friday, May 6: Brian Culbertson, Mike Stern Band, and Doug Davis; on Saturday May 7: Tito Puente Jr. Orchestra, Brian Lynch's "Unsung Heroes" Project featuring Ralph Moore, Aubrey Logan, Tony Rinaldi, and Kern County Honor Jazz Band.
