Jazz & Blues tickets go on sale today
STARTING today, January 29, fans will be able to secure tickets for the Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival scheduled for January 30 to February 1, 2014.

Organisers have divided tickets to provide the fans with these choices by categorising the tickets in daily, weekend, and season passes.

General admission weekend passes are available for US$155, which allows entry on Friday and Saturday, while the general season pass is US$200.

According to Junior Taylor, associate producer for the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival, the ticket prices remain the same as last year, despite the drastic decline in the exchange rate. "The cost of the production is of such that we had to rationalise to spend and ensure that ticket prices are not out of the reach of local patrons," Taylor said.
The announcement of online ticket sales comes in the thick of a string of revelations for next year's show.
Organisers have once again pulled out all the stops as they are set to deliver a thrilling line-up at the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium. A show cast such as the performers for the 2014 Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival can be considered unrivalled for any solitary music festival, as a diverse blend of pop, jazz, rhythm & blues and reggae will all be incorporated within the three-day extravaganza.
Already, organisers have announced the likes of six-time Grammy winner Toni Braxton and the 2009 Best Urban/Alternative Performance Grammy awardee Chrisette Michele.
Organisers are advising that all purchases be made only through the Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival's official website, jamaicajazzandblues.com.
