As of Wednesday, January 6th Newport Jazz Festival has announced at least 12 different acts that will perform at the 62nd edition of  the historic festival.

Date Announced, Artist & Announcement
Flex Tickets are currently on sale for the Newport Jazz Festival. 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.
