Herbie Hancock, a true icon of modern music, is playing the festival on Wednesday, June 26 at the TD Mainstage. Being a member of the Miles Davis Quintet, he has been an integral part of every jazz movement since the 1960s.

Grammy award-winning Dr. John, or Mac Rebennack, is universally celebrated as the living embodiment of the rich musical heritage exclusive to New Orleans. With a musical career spanning 5 decades this legendary artist recently produced the 2013 Grammy award-winning, “Locked Down”, produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys.

Juno award-winner Serena Ryder joins the lineup on Monday, June 24th at the TD Mainstage.
