This year’s Monterey Jazz Festival celebration will be held virtually.  This incredible lineup features exclusive new and previously unreleased archival performances from past festivals. Unique and memorable jazz moments will be spread across the three days.

This year, MJF recognizes the need to shine a spotlight not only on what has been happening with the music, but even more importantly with the Black community, which is so integral to jazz and the Festival.

One hundred percent of online contributions from each day of the Virtual Festival will be donated to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and to jazz artists featured at the Virtual Festival.
