About Indy Jazz Fest

A mainstay in the Indianapolis arts and culture scene for nearly two decades, the annual Indy Jazz Fest returns in 2017 with a 10-day lineup celebrating the legacy of jazz, modern masters and the discovery of new jazz stars. The sounds and lore of the Hammond B3 organ will be prevalent as part of the IJF Organ Summit. Since its inception in the 1950s, the Hammond B3 continues to be one of the most popular keyboard instruments. The 2017 Indy Jazz Fest will also feature the number “100” with events paying homage to the likes of Ella Fitzgerald and Dizzy Gillespie, jazz innovators that at “100” are still guiding forces in the jazz scene.
