Over Two Million Reached by DJF Stream

When it was announced that the 2021 Detroit Jazz Festival would go to virtual presentation, Detroit jazz fans shed a collective tear. With COVID cases rising and Detroit Hart Plaza renovation behind schedule, there was no way that festival producers could guarantee safe viewing given social distancing requirements. Fortunately, the festival team had experience from 2020 and was prepared to improve on last year’s performances and production.
Numbers don’t lie and the results are out: The 2021 Detroit Jazz Festival doubled stream coverage from 2020. More than two million viewers from every continent except Antarctica took in the concerts which could run over twelve hours continuously in a day.

Just like a year ago SEMJA’s team of reviewers was able to cover some of the highlights of this year’s festival, so please take a look here for the details.
