It all kicks off with a little Jam Session, at the Ticket Office on Friday night. By the time the last Band has finished on Sunday, there will have been 125 sessions played by 58 bands, involving 225 musicians, with 60 volunteers, seven venues, and, as best we can tell, over 500 people in town over the two days.
I have consistently opposed gun rights my entire life. Having now entered into dealings with APRA, I reserve the right to change my mind.
If you are planning to come, tickets are available from Friday onwards, at the Ray Bradfield Room. Cash, credit cards, and for all I know, Bulgarian Dinars accepted.
$35 (Under 18, Concession Card Holders)
$20 (Under 18, Concession Card Holders)
Children under 12 get in for free.
Tickets can still be purchased on the website. There are a whole bunch of featured bands in this week’s update. Check it out!
This Week’s Featured Artiste
Marg will be there! Also known as POCKOTL on account of having the bright idea of collecting e-mail addresses when the original Dizzy’s Jazz Club closed down. Marg has a startling propensity for leaping unexpectedly on to the nearest table, and dancing a Highland Fling or a Tango Criollo, possibly both simultaneously. Had it not been for the Princess of Cool and Keeper Of The List, there would have been no more jam sessions. Had it not been for the Jam Sessions, there would have been no Festival.
So if it all goes tits up and pear shaped, MARG IS TO BLAME!
