Going, Going, Almost Gone... Newport Jazz Festival Flexible Discount Tickets To Be Discontinued on March 1

NEWPORT, RI – The countdown is on for purchasing flexible discount tickets for the Newport Jazz Festival presented by Natixis Global Asset Management. Priced at just $55, Flex Tickets can be used for adult general admission for concerts at Fort Adams State Park July 31-August 2, 2015.* But, hurry, beginning on Monday, March 2, tickets will be available for the regular price of $74.00.

With a Flex ticket, there is no need for fans to decide now which day to attend. The offer is not valid on reserved seats, or for the Friday evening concert at the International Tennis Hall of Fame at the Newport Casino.

“As the sun is getting higher and the days are getting longer, I'm sure people are beginning to think about plans for the summer,” said George Wein, Chairman of the Newport Festivals Foundation and producer of the Jazz festival since it began in 1954. “I’m looking forward to seeing old friends and new fans on the weekend of July 31 - August 2 at the 61st Newport Jazz Festival. I'm biased, but I can't think of a better place to be that weekend.”

Special $20 Student tickets are still available. High school students older than 15 and college students with valid ID must use the Student Gate and present valid ID to enter the festival. Students without valid ID will be directed to the Box Office to pay the difference of a general admission ticket. Flex tickets for Children ages 3-15 are $15.00.

Flex tickets are available at the Newport Visitor Information Center, 23 America’s Cup Avenue.

The 2015 edition of America’s first annual jazz festival will feature Chris Botti, Cassandra Wilson, Jamie Cullum, Snarky Puppy, Maria Schneider, Arturo Sandoval, Dr. John, Jack DeJohnette: Made in Chicago, Kenny Garrett, Billy Childs, Arturo O’Farrill, Fred Hersch, Cecile McLorin Salvant, Jon Batiste, Kneebody, Hiromi, Michel Camilo, Jon Faddis, James Carter, Christian McBride, Bill Frisell, Mike Stern/Bill Evans Band, Ambrose Akinmusire, Tom Harrell, Pat Martino, Matana Roberts, John Hollenbeck, Ms. Lisa Fischer and Grand Baton and many others.

* Tickets for the Friday, July 31, concert at Fort Adams is priced at $40.00, so it is a better deal if Flex Tickets are used for events on Saturday and Sunday.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
