Andre 3000, Atlanta, Jazz Fest

Andre 3000 (And His Flute) Return To Atlanta For Free Jazz Fest

Are you going?

The City of Atlanta recently announced that former OutKast member Andre 3000, who helped define Atlanta hip-hop, will perform at Atlanta Jazz Festival 2024.

The free annual celebration of culture, community, and jazz will take place Saturday, May 25, through Monday, May 27, at Piedmont Park from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. each day.

“We have a fabulous lineup of musicians performing at the 47th Annual Atlanta Jazz Festival on Memorial Day Weekend,” Camille Russell Love, executive director of the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs, said in a written statement. “We invite you to experience an eclectic mix of jazz by National artists on Saturday, explore the global sounds of some of the world’s best International artists on Sunday, and discover the latest music from notable Atlanta musicians on Monday.”

Andre 3000 is slated to bring his flute to the stage on Day 3. Last year, he finally released a solo album that the hip-hop audience had requested since his days in OutKast. But there were no Andre verses as he opted to debut an instrumental flute album, New Blue Sun.
