Artists like reggae royalty Ziggy Marley, jazz innovator Herbie Hancock and blues star Jimmie Vaughan willl take the stage at the Saskatchewan Jazz Festival.

Full details were announced today of who will be playing the 10-day event, and you can expect plenty of Canadian artists will sell out this year.

Saskatchewan born Colin James will open the festival in the Bessborough Gardens on June 21.

Other Canucks include top selling artists like electro-pop sensation Metric, singer-songwriter Dallas Green, a.k.a. City and Colour, and folk rocker Serena Ryder.

"We've got a really eclectic mix this year full of acts people already love, as well as some hidden gems." said festival manager Kevin Tobin.

The Jazz Festival is not all about the big stage at the Bessborough Gardens. There are venues all over the city where people can see acts like Nikki Yanofsky, Suzie Vinnick and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

Admission is free at some venues, but other acts charge up to $50 per ticket.

All tickets and a full program will be available online.
