The TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival has announced its 2021 event will take place virtually this summer, and organizers have now revealed who will be playing the 35th annual edition.

From June 25 to July 4, there will be more than 100 virtual concerts, which will arrive as ticketed streams. There also may be a few very limited in-person shows, but it will depend on provincial health orders. All the ticketed livestreams will be available to watch until midnight on July 6.

Among the many artists participating are the likes of Sun Ra Arkestra, Snotty Nose Rez Kids, Tonye Aganaba, Jill Barber, Jeff Parker and the New Breed, Hamid Drake and Michael Zerang, the Watermill Project, Talking Pictures, Limbs of the Stars and more.

Overall, there will be the 10-day long International Streaming Series, with shows from the Innovation Ironworks Series and Pyatt Hall and Frankie's Jazz Club shows.

Streaming packages go on sale at 10 a.m. PT on April 26, while single tickets will be available on May 3. You can learn more about 2021 festival and who's playing at the fest website.
