Dear Festival supporters,

Many of you have asked about schedule and tickets.  We are at present very busy putting the finishing touches on this year’s program and schedule.  With so many great performers and presenters we want to make sure that you have the best options available to you.  So, rest assured that it will be soon that we will have the schedule ready to announce.

However, we do have an announcement that we believe will interest many of you.  We have always offered a Full Festival Pass (FFP), which has the advantage of giving the user total flexibility in choosing events.  It gives you admission to five major concerts, as well as any workshop or demo performance.  Imagine having to choose between two attractive events at the same time, picking one, and then wishing you had chosen the other.  With the FFP you can still redo that selection.  Your badge will give you entry no matter where (or when) you choose to go.  Imagine also that you have made yourself an event schedule, but a chance meeting with a musician has you wanting to change your plan.  With the FFP you can easily make that change.  It’s totally up to you.

Well, this year we’ve made that option more affordable.  We have reduced the price by $50.  If you purchase a FFP by August 31st it will cost you only $300.  Last year the same pass would have cost you $385 after the “early bird” deadline passed.  Furthermore, because the FFP is not dependent on the schedule being completed you can make your purchase now.  You can also purchase a Full Concert Pass at this time, although the specifics of those concerts are still being worked out.

To make either purchase at this time please access the online ticket service by clicking on either of the badges below from last year’s festival.
