This year’s edition of our annual festival is tailored for the times.  The satisfying line up of brilliant artists—both established and emerging, from Seattle and around the world—is brought to you in a setting that fits your preference. Whether that be the excitement of live, in-person attendance or through the comfort of video media streamed into your homes, we have something for everyone!

The health and safety of our artists, audiences, staff, and volunteers are of paramount importance. At all in-person shows we’re requiring that all ticket holders show proof of full vaccination at least two week prior or a negative test result within 48 hours. As always, face coverings of the nose and mouth must be worn by all for indoor events. Those viewing at home can dress as they please.

So pull up your face mask and fasten your seatbelt as we swing this new hybrid festival out of the garage and onto the 32-year legacy of home-grown and world-class Earshot Jazz Festivals.
