The tickets are different prices....check the jazzfest website, I think it's posted above in the thread somewhere. Tickets go on sale thru Ticketbastard or you can get them direct (check the FAQ section for info on this) saving on the Ticketbastard fees per ticket....then there is a VIP ticket and all access ticket which is really expensive. Tickets go onsale as soon as the acts are announced in February.

Whew, I did my research and homework, didn't I?!! The website also lists U2 as a Headliner the first weekend. Bono and Edge were apparently spotted in NO meeting with Jazzfest folks.

Big Chief VIP Experience:
Jazz Fest 2005 introduces the Big Chief VIP Experience! For the first time, a very select number of Festlovers (on a first-come basis) can take advantage of a complete VIP package to Jazz Fest. A special-access pass, the Festival’s official silkscreen poster, reserved parking (optional) and more! Check out the details below and get ready to experience Jazz Fest as no one has ever experienced it before!



Big Chief Pass
This specially created VIP pass and keepsake will gain patrons access to all Big Chief VIP areas (described below).


Daily Admission to the Heritage Fair (entry and re-entry) to each day of a specific Festival Weekend


Access to New VIP Viewing Stands
With the Big Chief VIP Experience, you’ll have access to private viewing areas at the five major stages at Jazz Fest: the Acura Stage, Gentilly Stage, Congo Square Stage, and the Jazz and Blues Tents. For your convenience, the Big Chief areas at the Acura and Gentilly Stages will be raised and covered, have padded seats, private comfort stations and exclusive cash beverage vending stands. Seating is unreserved within all Big Chief viewing areas, first-come, first-served.

Access to a Private Air-conditioned VIP Hospitality Lounge
Imagine your own air-conditioned lounge, right in the middle of Jazz Fest, where you can relax between sets or between meals. That’s just what you and a limited number of guests will receive with the Big Chief VIP Experience. This second floor lounge, reserved only for Big Chief guests, will allow you to renew and revitalize, with complimentary light refreshments. Enjoy full-service restrooms and a balcony with a panoramic view of the Festival!


Official Jazz Fest Poster
Big Chief patrons will receive a complimentary copy of the most collected poster series in the world, the official New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival poster. The poster series turns 30 years old in 2005!


Special Reserved Onsite Parking at the Fair Grounds Race Course is available in a premium package (details below)


A Jazz Fest Program Book, which includes a music schedule, food and crafts listings, a map, artists’ bios, Festival features and more



A very limited number of Big Chief VIP Packages are available.
Each package is offered on a per-weekend basis.

$550
Available with Daily Reserved Parking for $700

Big Chief VIP tickets are available online or by calling (800) 594-TIXX (8499).

*VIP viewing areas at the Congo Square Stage and the Blues and Jazz tents will be limited in size, and access may become unavailable if necessary to keep the areas from exceeding the legal capacity.

uh huh.....a Dublin pilgrimmage just for the heckuvit? OK then....just wanted to make sure there wasn't some other big announcement coming down the pipes about some show in Dublin, cuz if so I'd be there instead of Hawaii (cuz of finances) because I have a dream to make the Dublin pilgrimmage. AND I have a friend there I could stay with!

I also just now realized the statement I made about the road trip reads funny....(above post) I meant to say:

"I am working on New Orleans road trip partners"

just thought to clarify

Tax season and busy season totally sunk my Hawaii plans. I'm up to my eyeballs in spreadsheets. Jazz fest sounds really cool. Damn I want to go! Miss those Po Boys and Cafe Du M sugared donuts. I think this is going to be a very hot ticket.
