ABOUT THE RIJF CLUB PASS

We have been honored to bring you the finest in creative improvised music from around the world for 18 years in our renowned club pass series.

There is a vast difference between reserved seat concerts and RIJF’s 3-Day and 9-Day Club Pass series general admission tickets. Club Pass Tickets offer a steeply discounted value allowing attendance to as many shows as physically possible. Club Passes are fully transferable, shareable and are specially-priced value tickets providing a multi-day music experience. 

Since 2002, RIJF has developed its Club Pass series to offer as many performances on one ticket (a pass) as possible. Patrons who purchase 3- and 9-Day Club Pass tickets from late October to March before any artist names have been announced, know that the festival delivers high-level entertainment for a very low price over the course of several days in multiple venues.

Club Pass Show Entry without a Club Pass

You don't need a Club Pass to access Club Pass Series shows. Enter at the door for $30 ($35 Kilbourn Hall), cash only. No advance tickets are sold for Club Pass Series Shows and there are no reserved seats. Entry is first-come, first-served for all, whether you pay cash at the door or have a Club Pass. Since venues may fill to capacity prior to shows so to ensure a better chance of a seat, arrive early and wait in line. Doors open 30 minutes before shows.

"The club pass is fantastic. It's very cool to be able to walk to all the different venues and to have different types of venues i.e. churches, bars, concert halls, etc .”

"As always, the Club Pass acts are both new and familiar. The range of types of jazz is broad. All performances i attended were well worth the price of the Club Pass."

“The club pass makes it possible to see a lot for a little. Great quality of music!
