A: We are offering the additional night add-ons of Wed. 4/24, Mon. 4/29, Tues 4/30 as well as Wed. 5/1 and Mon. 5/6. Please contact us at [email protected] to request a private link to purchase.
To add additional nights outside of what we offer to your ticket package, you will need to book those nights directly with the hotel. Please note, the front desk will most likely not have your ticket package reservation information yet. Once you’ve booked the additional night(s) with the hotel, please reach out to our Guest Services team at [email protected] with your reservation information and we’d be happy to submit a request to the hotel to link the reservations. While the hotel will always do their best to accommodate, there is a small chance you may have to switch rooms as all additional night requests are based on hotel availability.
Q: I purchased a package as a gift, but I will not be in attendance. How can my friend and family member pick up their ticket on my behalf?
A: To accommodate this, the original purchaser must contact our Guest Services team at [email protected] to authorize an alternate pick-up person at least 2 weeks before the event date. This authorization will allow a friend or family member to pick up the package on the purchaser’s behalf. All informational emails and correspondence will still go to the original purchaser, and it is up to them to relay the information to the guest that is attending the event.
Q: As a VIP guest, how will I be able to find all the amazing VIP amenities and services throughout the festival?
A: Check out the Jazz Fest website for more festival information and details! Additionally, as it gets closer to the event, the purchaser will receive an email with all important event details.
