Included in student tuition is a 3-day festival pass for each student, master classes with festival stars and a performance opportunity for each student on a dedicated second stage for our students. Organized Jam Sessions will take place between Main Stage acts all weekend long. The Jam Sessions allow students who attended the camp in Sessions 1, 2 and 3 to perform on the festival. Most students who attend Session 4 will be scheduled to perform with their Session 4 Combo. Session 4 students are also welcome to participate in jam sessions, but priority is given to students whose combos could not be reformed for the festival.
Combo books will be provided. If you would like to play, be at the student stage at least 10 minutes before the Jam Session starts, and talk to the Jazz Fest Member in charge of that particular session. Vocalists: please bring charts or be prepared to sing a standard in the original key or a Blues.
Please note: students may use their nametag from camp as a 3-day pass to a designated student seating section in the back of the Mainstage Tent. The pass is non-transferable and cannot be upgraded. Additional tickets for parents, siblings or friends can be purchased in advance of the festival or at the gate during festival weekend. Children 12 and under are free on the lawn with a parent/guardian. There is also a special student discount at the gate. You do not need a Mainstage Tent ticket to watch the student performances on the student stage.
See the Buy Tickets page to purchase additional tickets to the festival.
