Thank you for your interest in performing in the Hyde Park Jazz Festival. Booking for 2019 is complete. We will begin booking for 2020 in January 2020.

Thank you for your interest in the Hyde Park Jazz Festival. The 2020 Festival will take place September 26 and 27, 2020. The artistic direction and programming of the festival is a complex activity with many factors involved. A small portion of our programs will be determined from submitted proposals. If you wish to submit a proposal we ask that you please use the following guidelines:

  • Please send a brief description, website, and work sample via email to Only work sent to this email will be considered.

  • If you have upcoming performance dates not on your website, we invite you to include that information in your submission.

  • We very much appreciate online work samples rather than CDs. If you must send a CD, please send it to Hyde Park Jazz Festival, 1155 E. 60th Street, #314, Chicago, IL 60637.

  • We conclude booking by March 31st. We review applications between January 2 and February 28.

You will receive a confirmation of receipt from us when you submit your materials. Please understand that we are unable to guarantee other correspondences. We do our best to communicate with everyone but if you do not hear from us, it is because we cannot accommodate your ensemble at this time. You do not need to followup.

Thank you again for your interest.
