Over the last few weeks the Newport Jazz Festival has slowly been announcing who will take the stage on July 29-31 at Fort Adams State Park and the International Tennis Hall of Fame at the Newport Casino.
Additional acts will be announced to the festival lineup through January 21 when all tickets go on sale.
Date Announced, Artist & Announcement
Surprise someone with the Gift of Jazz – an unforgettable trip to the 2016 Newport Jazz Festival. To help with the surprise, the Newport Festivals Foundation, Inc. is offering flexible (Flex) tickets priced at just $59 for the holiday season.
The $59 Flex tickets can be used for General Admission to concerts at Fort Adams State Park on any day of the festival, so there is no need to decide now which day to attend. Regularly priced adult tickets will be $45 for Friday and $79-89 for Saturday and Sunday; therefore, it’s best to use adult Flex tickets for Saturday and Sunday to get the savings.
Flex tickets can be purchased on-line at www.newportjazzfest.org and in person at the Newport Visitors Information Center, 23 America’s Cup Avenue (www.discovernewport.org). Service charges apply with on-line purchases. This offer is not valid on reserved seats or for the Friday evening concert at the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, Saturday, Aug. 2, 2014, Fort Adams State Park
