The 34th annual installment of the festival proudly ran without a deficit again this year with a 33? Increase in revenue generated by sales of new tourist packages. A number of major downtown hotels also reported an approximately 30% increase in American visitors for the Festival period in comparison with last year’s event. Performers included folk and world music stars like Feist, Wax Tailor, and Amadou & Mariam as well as jazz heavyweights like Vijay Iyer, Ravi Coltrane, Gregory Porter, Wayne Shorter, Wynton Marsalis and more.
