By re-branding its yearly Jazz by the Boulevard event as the more universally fitting Fort Worth Music Festival, Fort Worth hopes to not only expand on the breadth of performers it brings to town for this event annually, but also to increase attention on the region's rich musical talent.

In its ninth year, the event will still feature premier jazz acts such as the Grammy-winning Kirk Whalum and New Orleans trumpeter Kermit Ruffins, but it's also beefed up with a lineup featuring popular non-jazz acts such as Dawes, Lucero, Meat Puppets and Gene Ween, as well as sets from local favorites Seryn, Telegraph Canyon, The Orbans and others.
The two-day event, held on the Will Rogers Memorial Center lawn, is taking a big step this year toward bringing the type of focus to Fort Worth's scene that 35 Denton has brought to its city in recent years. At just $10 a pop for a two-day pass, organizers are off to a fine start.
