The time has come to start thinking about the next Newport Jazz Festival as a limited number of Flex Tickets for the 2016 event will go on sale on Tuesday, October 27th.

The 2016 Newport Jazz Festival is scheduled for July 29th, 30th and 31st.

“Flex” means that you can buy a ticket at a discounted price and have the flexibility to choose whether you want to use it on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

You can use the $59 Flex Ticket for the Friday program which focuses on emerging talent, but you can also buy a regular-priced ticket Friday for $45, so it’s best to use the flex on Saturday or Sunday to maximize your savings. Student tickets will remain at $20 and there are a limited number of flex tickets available for students, as well.

The Flex Ticket offer is good while supplies last and this ticket option does sell out quickly, so grab them while they last early on Tuesday.

The Newport Jazz Festival promises to start announcing talent for their 2016 event soon, you can always count on the music and artists there being the best there is in jazz.
