Tickets for Friday at Fort Adams State Park

NEWPORT, RI, November 24, 2014 -
The Newport Jazz Festival® presented by Natixis Global Asset Management initiated a third full day of music at Fort Adams State Park in 2014 to present the panorama of energy and talent that George Wein and his veteran staff continue to find in young musicians currently searching for new directions in jazz. Friday concerts at Fort Adams will return on July 31, 2015 with a stellar line-up, including Kneebody and the sophomore appearance of Snarky Puppy, as well as other artists who are emerging in the popular vein, while still maintaining time-honored jazz traditions.

"What we created at the 60th anniversary festival has become the most exciting addition to the jazz festival in many years, " said George Wein, producer of the Newport Jazz Festival since its beginning in 1954. "More than 2, 500 people attended the Friday concerts at Fort Adams this past summer, and the spirit they brought was unbridled.

"With a $40 general admission ticket and a $20 student ticket available for Friday at the Fort, we have fostered an event that has caught the attention of the global public and jazz media alike, " Wein added.

General admission tickets for Friday at the Fort go on sale Tuesday, November 25, at 10:00 am at www.newportjazzfest.org and www.ticketmaster.com. Service charges apply. In addition, jazz fans in the Newport area can purchase tickets at the Newport Visitor Information Center, 23 America's Cup Avenue (www.discovernewport.org). Reserved seating is not available on Friday. There are no service charges on tickets purchased in person at the Visitor Center.

Flex tickets, which can be used for general admission on any day at Fort Adams events, are also on sale on-line and in Newport at the Visitor Center. While supplies last, music lovers can buy Flex tickets now and decide later which day they want to attend. The Flex ticket is not valid on reserved seats, or for the Friday evening concert at the International Tennis Hall of Fame at the Newport Casino. Flex tickets are $55 for Adults, $ 20 for Students and $15 for Children. Regularly priced Adult tickets will be $74 for Saturday and Sunday. (Service charges apply to all tickets purchased on-line or by phone.)
