UPDATE: Huge congrats to the winners of our first Festival City contest. Ben Sandy Bolduc, Becky Wheeler, Denis Jacob and Joey Ross have won a pair of tickets each to an Ottawa Jazz Festival OLG Late Night Series show. Stay tuned for our next contest coming soon.
"Catering to a younger audience than the main stage, the series hops genres like a stream on shuffle," says the Festival in a recent press release.
Dance parties, international acts, glitch-hop, '40s style hot jazz, folk rock and even a movie set to live music are coming to the tent outside City Hall and you can be part of the party.
We are giving away four pairs of tickets to a
series show of the winner's choice and there's
lots to choose from!
Some of the artists coming to the After Dark Series include local songsmith Jim Bryson (June 30), the best-known Romani brass band the world and legends of gypsy brass with Fanfare Cioc?rlia (June 28), Grammy winner and Prince-protégé Judith Hill (June 29), Japanese masters of "death jazz" Soil & "Pimp" Sessions (July 2), indie-electronic siblings Tennyson (June 25), French DJ CloZee (June 27), the silent film comedy The Oyster Princess set to a live scoreperformed by the Flat Earth Society (June 23) and the sure to be dance floor filling retro-rockers The 24th Street Wailers (June 26).
