CITY Newspaper's guide to Rochester's largest music festival. The 2017 Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival runs Friday, June 23, through Saturday, July 1, in downtown Rochester. For concert reviews, photos, and the latest news from the Jazz Fest, check our website every day of the festival.
There are more than 320 shows at this year's Jazz Festival, so it can be a little overwhelming when deciding who to see. To help give you a taste of this year's offerings, CITY and JAZZ 90.1 put together a Spotify playlist of the 16 bands we're most excited about.
