Past performers include: Diana Krall, Molly Johnson, Bill Frisell, Arturo Sandoval, Mose Allison, Afro Cuban All Stars, Hugh Masekela and so many more.

The Atlantic Jazz Festival takes place at 13 venues/stages including: an outdoor main stage, a main indoor soft-seater, and a varying number of smaller venues such as art galleries, performance spaces, cathedrals, nightclubs, an official late night club venue and a handful of workshop spaces.

100-125 performance slots are available, and compensation is negotiable. Genres accepted include jazz, blues, World, and roots.

The Atlantic Jazz Festival is guaranteeing to select 1 artist who submits in December - so make sure to get your submission in early!

Hotel accommodations are provided typically through the festival's host hotel, and those artists paying for their own accommodations are encouraged to use that hotel in order to receive a significant discount. The Festival often will arrange the booking of accommodations even for those artists who are paying for their own accommodations.

The Atlantic Jazz Festival has grown significantly - from its grassroots beginnings in 1987 to the world-class festival it has become - entertaining over 65,000 fans while retaining its casual, intimate character and staying true to its community roots. Their mandate is to present the highest quality live jazz, blues, world and roots music in the spirit of collaboration and improvisation.
