The Newport Festivals Foundation continues to slowly roll out the 2016 Newport Jazz Festival lineup. This year’s event will take place from July 29-31 at Fort Adams State Park and the International Tennis Hall of Fame at the Newport Casino.

$59 Flex Tickets are currently on sale and 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.

Additional acts will be announced to the festival lineup through January 21 when all tickets go on sale on
