Join the Atlanta Jazz Festival Society

The Atlanta Jazz Festival Society, formerly the 35 for 35 Society, is a group of jazz enthusiasts and aficionados who are committed to supporting the tradition of the Atlanta Jazz Festival. Since 1978, the Atlanta Jazz Festival has presented many of the most important artists in international music history. Festival goers experienced iconic performances by Lionel Hampton, Sarah Vaughn, and Miles Davis in the ‘80s, Dizzie Gillespie (1990) and Herbie Hancock (2000). Esperanza Spaulding filled Piedmont Park just months before receiving a Grammy Award in 2010. Our festival has created new stages for future jazz legends and a Georgia home for seasoned talent. As we look to the future of this uniquely American musical tradition, it is vital to keep the Atlanta Jazz Festival alive and thriving for generations to come.

By becoming a member of the AJF Society your support ensures we are able to continue impacting a world of artists who look to the Atlanta Jazz Festival as a premier platform for the latest expressions of jazz culture. Your commitment enables the festival to remain an annual destination for not only jazz enthusiasts, but Atlanta’s residents and visitors who look forward to the festival each year.
