NEW ORLEANS – Announced today, a star-studded lineup coming to New Orleans for Jazz Fest 2019.

This year’s Jazz Fest will boast eight days of music, with nearly a thousand performers.

But the big question is, “How and where do I get tickets…?”


Single day, general admission tickets go on sale FRIDAY, January 18, at 10.A.M.

These are the “early-bird” tickets, priced at $70 per day.

ONE ticket is good for any ONE day, but you MUST specify whether you will be attending the first or second weekend.

That price is good through February 1, then the price increase to $75 per day.

That price remains until the day before the fest begins.

Tickets at the gate are $85. Children’s tickets are available at the gate only, for $5 (ages 2-10.)


On the first day of Jazz Fest, Thursday, April 25, there will be a “locals discount.”

On this day, Louisiana residents who show valid photo ID may purchase up to two tickets at a discounted rate of $50 each.

These tickets MUST be purchased at the gate.


General admission tickets for Thursday, May 2 must be purchased SEPARATELY.

These tickets will be $185 each, and are expected to sell out quickly.


Louisiana residents will have the chance to buy May 2 tickets a day before they go on sale to the public.

Up to TWO tickets may be purchased per valid Louisiana photo ID.

Each individual must be present with their own ID to make a purchase.

This sale will happen this Thursday, January 18, from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M.

Guests may begin lining up at 12:01 A.M. at the Superdome Box Offices, located at Gate D and Gate H on the Plaza level.


A Brass Pass (with attached bar-coded laminate) will grant you access to the festival on seven of the eight days. The Brass Pass alone  will NOT be good for May 2. If you already purchased your Brass Pass, WWOZ will give you the option to purchase one May 2 ticket ($185) per Brass Pass. Please look for an email from WWOZ on how to make this purchase. If you do not receive your email by Jan. 18, please contact the WWOZ membership department at (504) 568-1239 or email
