Truly a wish list come true. Extending the unique Jazz Fest festival atmosphere to anyone who can’t be there in person, makes all of us extremely proud that these once-in-a-lifetime performances, and the unique total experience of the Festival itself, will reach across the nation through AXS TV’s 24 hours of live broadcasts.”

“As the home for music festivals on TV, we are thrilled to be the official broadcaster of Jazz Fest for the second consecutive year. To be able to bring Jazz Fest’s unbelievable musical performances into the homes of our 42 million TV household audience is truly an honor and exceptional experience,” said Mark Cuban, AXS TV founder.
