Newport Jazz Festival Music Tickets

The Newport Jazz Festival music tickets are some of the most in-demand tickets in town, thanks to the show's impressive lineup of classic jazz performers. This prestigious festival was founded in 1954 by socialite Elaine Lorillard and her husband Louis Lorillard, who financed the festival for many years and hired jazz impresario George Wein to help organize the event. In the early years, the festivals were also featured on Voice Of America radio and many performances were recorded and released via major record labels.


The Newport Jazz Summer Festival Tickets

Since 1972, the Newport Jazz Festival has taken place in both New York City and Rhode Island. As of 2012 the festival is sponsored by Natixis Global Asset Management, and is hosted in Newport at Fort Adams State Park. Many attendees also enjoy the event's sister festival, the Newport Folk Festival, which is usually held within the same month. Whether you like jazz music, folk music, or both, you can save big on summer festival tickets when you order online at StubHub!


Fort Adams State Park Tickets

In 1954 the first Newport Jazz Festival was held at Newport Casino in Newport, Rhode Island and featured academic panel discussions in addition to live musical performances on an outdoors lawn. A number of notable jazz musicians appeared at the event, including Billie Holiday. The success of the festival forced its organizers to find a larger venue for the following year, and the festival went forward at Freebody Park, where it remained for nearly a decade, before taking up it's current location at Fort Adams State Park . This gorgeous venue features ocean views and three stages as well as a wide variety of beer, wine and flavorful foods. Visit StubHub today to order your Fort Adams State Park tickets before they're all sold out!


The Newport Jazz Festival Tickets

Since 1954, many of the greatest jazz musicians of all time have graced the stage at the Newport Jazz Festival. Two of the most famous performances in the festival's history are Miles Davis's 1955 solo on "'Round Midnight" and the Duke Ellington Orchestra's lengthy 1956 performance of "Diminuendo and Crescendo in Blue", featuring a 27-chorus saxophone solo by Paul Gonsalves. Other amazing artists have appeared over the years, including Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Judy Garland, Carmen McRae, Dave Brubeck, Ray Charles, Muddy Waters, Nina Simone, Lambert, Hendricks & Bavan, the Oscar Peterson Trio, Roland Kirk, Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Archie Shepp, Herbie Mann and Albert Ayler.
