Chaka Khan, Samara Joy,Esperanza Spalding and more to perform at “Music At The Intersection” Festival


“Music at the Intersection” returns for its fourth year September 14 and 15, 2024 with a diverse, roots-inspired, and decades-spanning artist lineup. Headliners include 10x Grammy-winning queen of funk Chaka Khan, psychedelic soul band Black Pumas, rapper Big Boi (of Outkast), New Orleans trombonist and trumpeter Trombone Shorty, 5x Gramming-winning jazz bassist Esperanza Spalding, funk group Lettuce, 2x Grammy-winning 24-year-old jazz singer Samara Joy and St. Louis rapper Chingy. The festival also features Ferguson-born trumpeter Keyon Harrold, a 3x festival alumnus, in a new role as Music at the Intersection Artist-in-Residence. 

With a special focus on “St. Louis Made,” Music at the Intersection pays homage to the city’s imprint on the American songbook, as well as the relationship St. Louis has with its Mississippi River roots. The festival aims to celebrate musical heritage, from the West African coasts to the Caribbean islands, up through the Mississippi Delta. Music at the Intersection honors the giants who shaped genre and sound – across blues, jazz, soul, R&B, hip-hop, and rock n’ roll – as it also calls up and gives a platform to a new wave of artists.

During the weekend, more than 50 national, regional, and local artists are scheduled to perform across four stages throughout Grand Center Arts District’s outdoor festival footprint – a mix of urban streets and green spaces, stretching across Washington Avenue, just east of Grand Boulevard. Tickets are on sale directly at MetroTix and prices start at $140 for all-weekend access or $75 for a day pass. GA+, VIP, and VIP+ options are also available.
