Django Fest at the Whidbey Island Center for the Arts

Sep 8, 2017


This September will mark the 17th annual DjangoFest Northwest. We've watched it grow from humble origins into five days of concerts and workshops, featuring dozens of world-class artists and thousands of attendees, making it the largest festival of Gypsy Jazz in North America! This coming DFNW promises to once again bring together the world's best and brightest musicians, a constellation of stars featuring both old friends and new. 

DjangoFest Northwest is one of the longest established Gypsy Jazz festivals in North America and this year's lineup, along with the workshops, is one of the best yet - guaranteed to be an exciting and informative time for everyone!

And, as always, numerous impromptu Djams spring-up wherever one turns, as the entire village of Langley (Djangley), on beautiful Whidbey Island, (a short ferry ride from Seattle) gets into the full swing of things. Please come join us for another unforgettable musical experience, guaranteed to put a tap in your foot and a grin on your face!
