The 42nd edition of the country’s longest-running free jazz festival will include performances from Makaya McCraven, Stefon Harris, and many more in Atlanta, Ga., this Memorial Day weekend.

The Atlanta Jazz Festival is set for Saturday, May 25, and Sunday, May 26, in Piedmont Park.

The festival, presented by the City of Atlanta’s Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs, is free thanks to support from the city, foundations, and corporations.

Artists will perform for more than 150,000 attendees on three newly named stages: the Meadow Stage, Oak Hill Stage, and Park Drive Stage.

In addition to the festival, the mayor’s cultural affairs office will again host “31 Days of Jazz” events beginning on May 1. Most of the events are free and will occur in locations across metro Atlanta, including at various MARTA stations, neighborhood parks, and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
