Blue Note Jazz Festival will return to Napa for the second year July 28th–30th with a wide-ranging lineup featuring Mary J. Blige, Nas, Chance the Rapper, and NxWorries (Anderson .Paak and KNXWLEDGE). Blue Note mainstay Robert Glasper will once again serve as artist in residence, performing sets with De La Soul, Lalah Hathaway, Bilal, and other special guests hosted by Dave Chappelle.
Having had a highly successful inaugural run in 2022 after adding a third day due to overwhelming demand, Blue Note has positioned itself as one of the West Coast’s top jazz festivals with an unparalleled lineup of jazz, hip-hop, funk, and soul greats. The festival will take place at Silverado Resort and Spa and host performances by DOMi and JD Beck, Gary Clark Jr., George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic, Rakim and DJ Jazzy Jeff, Talib Kweli and Madlib, Terrace Martin, Yussef Dayes, Cory Henry, Cordae, Digable Planets, Taylor McFerrin and Marcus Gilmore with special guest Bobby McFerrin, and more. Late-night after-parties will include Big Freedia and 9th Wonder on July 28th, DJ Jazzy Jeff on July 29th, and an all-vinyl DJ Pee Wee (Anderson .Paak) set on July 30th.
