For the third year in a row, radio listeners will hear live coverage from the main stage of the Chicago Jazz Festival right here on WDCB! Working together in partnership with our friends at the WFMT Radio Network and Choose Chicago, WDCB will bring the excitement of the festival to all of Chicagoland with a radio broadcast of three headlining sets direct from the Jay Pritkzer Pavilion in Millennium Park.

A favorite Chicago Labor Day weekend tradition, the 41st Annual Chicago Jazz Festival will be hosted from August 23–September 1 in Millennium Park, the Chicago Cultural Center (78 E. Washington St.) and at venues throughout the city. The festival is featuring free performances in neighborhood clubs and venues from August 23 to 28, leading up to the concerts at the Chicago Cultural Center and in Millennium Park.
