Parts of the Bix Jazz Fest will be moving out of Davenport next summer.

The festival has been held at various locations, but all in Davenport, since 1971.

But this year organizers learned that the River Center has booked another group into that venue during the usual Bix week in 2016.

So the majority of the festival's 45th year will be held at the Isle of Capri Hotel in Bettendorf.

Two outdoor concerts, on Friday and Saturday nights, will still be put on in LeClaire Park in Davenport.
