Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival 2013

Starting in less than a week, the famous Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival takes place at the University of Idaho. This half-week event is from February 20 - 23.

About the Hampton Jazz Festival

For 46 years, the University of Idaho and the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival brought together jazz masters and students of all ages to share and celebrate a truly American art form: Jazz music. The Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival has grown from a one-day event to an amazing four-day experience!

Having hosted thousands upon thousands of students, spectators, and artists – including Doc Severinsen, Bobby McFerrin, Sarah Vaughn, Dizzy Gillespie, The Manhattan Transfer, and countless musicians from around the world – the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival now includes student performances, workshops, clinics and remarkable world-class evening concerts.
