The Wisconsin Union Theater, in collaboration with Isthmus, is excited to announce the line-up for the 2018 annual Isthmus Jazz Fest. For the first time ever, this year’s festival spans 10 days. Ilango Villoth, the Wisconsin Union Directorate’s Performing Arts Committee Jazz Assistant Director says, “2018 marks the incredible 51st anniversary of the Isthmus Jazz Festival, and as we begin the journey toward a full century benchmark, I'm ecstatic to announce that the festival has evolved into a city-wide celebration of Jazz! Our wonderful committee has been hard at work programming jazz shows and events stretching throughout and beyond the entire Isthmus area. This grander festival format allows for a wider variety of jazz to be shown and celebrated throughout venues all around the city of Madison, including a Strollin' series on State Street.

“And if you've come to love the previous festivals on the Terrace, don't panic -- the two Saturdays bookending the Isthmus Jazz Festival, June 2nd and 9th, will feature full days of jazz on the Terrace."
