Norah Jones, Wynton Marsalis and Diana Krall are just a few of the acts featured on the Newport Jazz Festival 2020 lineup. The legendary event takes place at the scenic Fort Adams State Park in Newport, Rhode Island August 7 – 9.

Khruangbin, Robert Glasper, Cory Wong, Makaya McCraven and Christian McBride are more artists set to play Newport Jazz this August. Additionally, Angelique Kidjo will lead a tribute to the famed Talking Heads album Remain In Light. Tickets are on sale now through Eventbrite.

“This year’s Newport Jazz Festival continues the tradition of presenting jazz, as [founder] George Wein would say, ‘from J to Z,'” said curator/artistic director Christian McBride. “For three days in August, all eyes and ears in the jazz world focus on what happens at Newport. It’s a thrill to present everyone from the great Wynton Marsalis, who’s making his first appearance at the festival in 9 years, to Diana Krall, who’s making her first appearance at the festival in over 20 years.”
