Festival Jam: Get your groove on

A semi-official Festival tradition continues Friday in Parc de Lafayette as everyone is invited to get down and celebrate creativity.

DJs, jazz musicians, hip-hop dancers, hula-hoopers and celebrants of all stripes are encouraged to stop by Parc de Lafayette on Festival Friday between 2 p.m. and 10:30 for the annual, off-the-grid, anything-goes Festival Jam. It’s a semi-official gathering of the young and the young-at-heart in the small water-fountain park adjacent to the parking tower that has coalesced over the last several years of Festival into a go-to gathering that bristles with the spirit of creativity that Festival International has always encouraged.

Featuring performers at this year’s Festival Jam include DJ Prima, DJ Digital, DJ Andino, DJ Funky Mojo and DJ Agent Downbeat spinning beats or whatever those young cats do.

Here’s a video highlight of last year’s Jam:
