The City of Miami Gardens is proud to announce the complete lineup of the 11th Annual Jazz in the Gardens Music Festival (JITG) taking place on March 19th – 20th, 2016, at Sun Life Stadium (347 Don Shula Dr, Miami Gardens, FL 33056). Tickets are available now at Ticketmaster.

This year’s lineup features Usher, Aretha Franklin, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Janelle Monae, Brian Culbertson, Michael McDonald, Kool and The Gang, Fred Hammond, The Average White Band, and The Jazz in the Gardens All-Stars featuring Regina Belle, Najee & Alex Bugnon, along with local artists CriStyle Renae, April Raquel and Kouture Band, and LaVie. Returning to the stage as host is comedian and nationally-syndicated radio personality Rickey Smiley.

“This is our signature annual event that people from all over the world look forward to attending every year,” said City of Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert. “Last year’s event took Jazz in the Gardens to the next level, and with this year’s lineup of top-notch musical talent, we expect this year will continue the trend,” he continued.

Last year’s 10th Annual JITG broke box office records with more than 73,000 people attending. Approximately 42,000 festival-goers attended Saturday’s show, the first sold-out day in the history of the event. Fans from all across the nation and abroad enjoyed performances from Maxwell, Erykah Badu, R. Kelly, Toni Braxton, Run D.M.C., and Brian Culbertson, just to name a few. Comedians and nationally-syndicated radio personalities D.L. Hugley and Rickey Smiley co-hosted the festival. Last year’s JITG event also drew surprise celebrities including actors Bryshere Y. Gray and Jussie Smollett, who star as Hakeem and Jamal, respectively, on the red-hot, Fox television series “Empire.”
