The 40th annual Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival features Chaka Khan, Gipsy Kings, Jacob Collier, Cecile McLorin Salvant, and many more. Catch headliners in the SPAC amphitheatre and up-and-comers at the Gazebo. Coolers, blankets, beach chairs, and the like are welcome. “In presenting the 40th edition, the Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival continues to be in a powerful position to honor the musicians who’ve given us the rich legacy of jazz heritage, and to present a new and diverse generation of artists and visionaries who embody a community that’s a life force for new ideas and social change,” festival producer Danny Melnick told The Alt last month.
