The 2020 Detroit Jazz Festival presented by Rocket Mortgage will be streamed and broadcast “live” for free this Labor Day weekend. The Festival begins on Friday, Sept. 4 and runs through Monday, Sept. 7. The Festival, which will be held without audiences, will offer this new virtual format in recognition of current city, state and federal safety guidelines for public gatherings during the pandemic. All performances will be streamed or broadcasted live (no replays or on-demand) from indoor sound stages at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center and closed to the public.
Stephen Henderson talks with Chris Collins, Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation president and artistic director, in conjunction with Rocket Mortgage Director of Community Sponsorships Jasmin DeForrest.
