Event Details

EDGEFEST 20: 20 YEARS AT THE EDGE (October 26-29, 2016) will celebrate the iconic and avant-garde artistry of the past 20 years, while looking ahead to the future of the festival and jazz at the edge itself! On the occasion of the festival’s 20th anniversary, Dave Lynch, founder of Edgefest and the Artistic Director for its first 10 years, joins KCH in the planning of this banner year. Drawing from the artist rosters of former Edgefests, 2016 will feature distinguished groundbreaking composer-performers with their ensembles and collaborators, illuminating their various innovative roles in the avant/jazz world of today. In the tradition of Edgefest, the roster will also include renowned performers and ensembles from our home community of Southeast Michigan and other new-to-the-festival faces from the front lines of the avant-garde jazz scene.

An Edgepass ($160) is available, which allows for admission to all events, Wednesday through Saturday, as well as a special dinner Wednesday evening with our Edgefest artists. This Saturday daypass is $60, which allows for admission to all events on Saturday. For general information about the festival, click here.
