SAN DIMAS, CA - Omega Events is proud to announce the lineup for the 12th Annual JazzFest West, formerly the Old Pasadena JazzFest, slated for July 21 & 22. The lineup will feature three hip, urban vocalists... Erykah Badu, Brian McKnight & KEM... as well as many jazz festival favorites including Stanley Clarke, Euge Groove and The Average White Band, amongst others.

The new home of the festival is Bonelli Park in San Dimas, a tree-lined venue that is adjacent to Raging Waters and Puddingstone Lake. After eleven years in the Pasadena area, Omega Events moved the festival to Bonelli Park in an effort to seek more room for the festival's growth.

On Saturday, July 21, JazzFest West will close the show with an artist that has never performed at the festival. This Mystery Headliner has sold millions of records, received Grammy nominations, and is always at the top of the “wish lists" of jazz fans. Contractually, Omega Events is forbidden from announcing the artist until the gates open on July 21.

An international food court will feature an eclectic array of menu items. Additionally, many original artists and vendors will be displaying their work at the Vendor Village. To beat the July heat, Cool Zones will be situated throughout the grounds with misting systems & shade structures. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Pasadena Kiwanis Club, a local nonprofit organization that supports youth group activities.

TICKETS: General admission tickets are $45 per day or $75 for a two-day pass. VIP tickets($85 per day) and Gold Tickets ($165 per day) offer various amenities and reserved seats. Tickets can be purchased at OmegaEvents.com, the OE Box Office (949-360-7800), all Wahoos Fish Tacos and all Ticketmaster locations.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
