CHECK OUT THE LINEUP
jazz on the cape
It’s a phenomena. Twice a year, every Spring and Fall, sensory experiences go on overload in Cape May when the Exit Zero Jazz Festival stages its world-class music fest. Music can be heard everywhere in Cape May - on the streets in the form of New Orleans style second line parades, in the clubs and restaurants bursting at the seams with music and energy and on the concert stages where international touring artists throw down at what has become known as one of the most respected and creative jazz festivals in the country.
Exit Zero Jazz takes its cue from European festival models, which puts the City of Cape May center stage. Festival-goers stroll from club to club along the streets of Cape May soaking up the exhilarating sounds — proving that the magic of the festival is not so much who you know, but the discovery of bands and music performing on the concert stages and in the intimate clubs. It’s a blast.
2019 Main Stage headliners include 22 time Grammy Winner Chick Corea, jazz and pop superstars The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Lizz Wright, NOJO 7 and José James.
