Andre 3000 To Headline Atlanta Jazz Festival 2024

The City of Atlanta recently announced that former OutKast member, Andre 3000, along with other musical guests will be performing at this year’s Atlanta Jazz Festival 2024.

The jazz festival is a free annual celebration of culture, community, and the musical genre of jazz. It will take place from Saturday, May 25 through Monday, May 27 at Piedmont Park and will feature musicians from Atlanta and beyond. The festivities will occur throughout the three days from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

“We have a fabulous lineup of musicians performing at the 47th Annual Atlanta Jazz Festival on Memorial Day Weekend,” Camille Russell Love, Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs said in a written statement. “We invite you to experience an eclectic mix of jazz by National artists on Saturday, explore the global sounds of some of the world’s best International artists on Sunday, and discover the latest music from notable Atlanta musicians on Monday.”

Andre “3000” Benjamin is slated to bring his flute to the stage on Day 3 of the festival, May 27. Last year, Andre 3000 AKA “3 Stacks” surprised the music world when he finally released a solo album that the hip-hop audience had been requesting since his days in OutKast. The shock was that there were no Andre verses as he opted to debut an instrumental album featuring sounds from his flute. He will be playing songs from his solo album, “New Blue Sun.”
