Well that’s great/honorable it is available to the locals/ community of jazz attendees 1st.


I know nothing about NO but have read books describing the neighborhoods and history.

The quieter side appeals to me, unlike the large freaky alcohol beaded parade

Oh great! Another Ticketmaster fiasco to look forward to. Get ready for '1000 people are ahead of you', time differences between TM mobile and web version, and behold, after you wasted an hour, you can now buy TM Resale tix. No thanks. I'm glad I got to see this tour 10 times in Europe.

For those who want to get close to the band, there are VIP areas across the front area of each stage, and for the weekend that includes May 2nd the VIP package you'd want is the Grand Marshal one ($2000).

Aquamarine - not that I'm buying the VIP, but trying to think WHERE the Grand Marshall seats are? I recall one time seeing a show on the Acura (the BIG stage, right?) and there was an area people were watching from, like ON the stage - sort of like A Bigger Bang tour. According to a map I saw on Jazz Fest page though, it looked like it was a section away from the stage?

Grand Marshall is standing ONLY, in front of the three largest stages (Stones are playing at the largest Acura.) From my experience there is always plenty of room at the Acura stage, however the other 2 Grand Marshall areas are smaller and may require getting there early to get in.

There has been seating on the stage left and right in the past BUT you gotta really have a connection, they not for sale.

There are also two other VIP areas that have seating.

Some more background, interesting mostly as it confirms there will be a runway! There will also be additional bleachers (these will be in the back).

There is also a funny typo 2nd paragraph where it says a greed instead of agreed.

This will be a great weekend for those going, no doubt.
Especially those who've not experienced the festival or the city before.

As much fun as this one will be, without the spendy Grand Marshall or Big Chief passes, this I think will definitely have it's challenges when it comes to getting a good spot. I realize they close all the other stages early and then have just the one, but I wonder if throwing a chair or blanket down early in the day will be allowed, or if you have to exit and re-enter.
Already looking forward to the live feeds.. cool smiley

Usually they only allow chairs/blankets behind a certain point, not toward the front. Realistically you can’t really save a spot early and go back later in the day. The VIP areas run right across the front of the stage, so with a regular ticket you’re always going to be behind them—but as they’re using a runway, that may make a difference this time.

EDIT NO CHAIRS OR TARPS WILL BE ALLOWED AT ACURA STAGE MAY 2. In recent times SMALL chairs are not allowed in the GA area closer to the stage. Exactly where they will draw the line on chairs being placed is unknown. A blanket/tarp greater than 6' x 8'is not permitted. In any case you cannot leave the space unoccupied.

A list of yes/no items:

[www.nojazzfest.com]

While things are always not that simple I suggest either 1) get a VIP area/ 2) GA area and emprace the crowd, but go early and maintain your space or 3) go early and stake out and maintain a seat in the bleachers

That is a funny typo! Here is the link
[www.nola.com]

^ The Stones will perform on the Acura stage, Davis said, which will be augmented with extra bleacher seating. Mick Jagger’s runway will stretch deeply into the audience, Davis said. The other stages will close at 4 p.m. on May 2, allowing time for the crowd to migrate to the Stones’ 5 p.m. appearance.

Will there be a maximum number of tickets sold? Yes, Davis said, though he doesn’t know the exact figure yet. “We don’t want to overcrowd this thing,” he said. “We want the number of people who can fit comfortably in front of that stage without being squished or pushed onto the track.”

Tickets to Rolling Stones Day go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on Friday (Jan 18) morning via Ticketmaster (as do all Jazz Fest 2019 tickets).

But to help ensure that local fans have a crack at May 2 tickets, roughly 10,000 will be sold at the Superdome plaza level Thursday (Jan 17) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m..

Fans will be allowed to begin lining up at midnight on Wednesday (Jan. 16).
Each fan may buy two tickets, on a first-come, first-serve basis.
