The BBJazz Music Festival returns to Huntington Beach for its 11th consecutive season. Owners Betty and Corky Bennish announce this year’s festival for two (2) days, showcasing some of the world’s top jazz and soul talent.

“This year, festival goers can enjoy two stages of great music,” said event organizers.

The festival will take place in a park located two miles north of the Pacific Coast Highway, “with ample trees and grassy areas,” they said.

“The stellar line up of artists will perform from 11:00am to 8:00pm.”

Featured artists include: Freddie Jackson, Johnny Gill, Keith Sweat, Mint Condition, Lalah Hathaway, Marcus Miller, Leela James, Anthony David, Kindred the Family Soul, John Michael, Noel Gourdin, Jeff Bradshaw and L Young.

During the two-day festival, the vendor village will offer an array of local food vendors, sponsor exhibits and other art interests. At the conclusion of live performances on Saturday night, BBJazz will host an after party in the Vendor Village, featuring L Young and his ‘dance’ band. BBJazz and vendors will offer special discounts on drinks, food and items from 8:00pm-9:30pm.
