A new Club Pass venue has also been added, the Inn on Broadway, which will feature two "blues and down home" shows daily for all nine days.

"As we prepare for our 13th amazing XRIJF next June, Marc and I are extremely pleased to welcome a new official Club Pass Series venue to our family of venues, 'The Squeezers Rhythm & Blues Stage' at The Inn on Broadway," said John Nugent, Artistic Director and Producer. "This new 500 capacity tent will feature Blues & R&B artists from around the region. In addition to the new 'Squeezers Stage', all of the same Club Pass Series venues will be in full gear daily, featuring over 1,500 performing artists from western NY, across the nation and from at least 15-20 countries from around the world. Our Club Pass Series Pass is the HOTTEST ticket in American music, bar none. Don't forget, our Club Pass artists are a voyage of musical discovery because it's NOT who you know, it's who you DON'T know!"

Only a limited number of passes is available. The Club Pass is an exceptional value pass, offering a significant savings over individual show tickets and access to Club shows at 13 venues.
