Jazz Fest After Dark takes place May 22-24, 2015 in Jacksonville, FL following the Jazz Fest 2015 performances. Along with the addition of three new venues, JFAD has expanded beyond the border of The Elbow, to include Riverside and San Marco.
Underbelly, Burro Bar, The Volstead, 1904 Music Hall, Downtown Cigar Lounge, and the Karpeles Manuscript Library are once again free hotspots, but The Parlor, Rain Dogs, and The Hourglass Pub have also been added to this already incredible roster.
The lineup has expanded to over 60 acts as well, including headlining performances from such local legends as Whole Wheat Bread, Inspection 12, Grandpa’s Cough Medicine, and more.
New to Jazz Fest After Dark 2015, a massive block party aimed at reactivating downtown’s core for Jazz Fest just like the good old days! On Saturday, May 23rd from 8pm – midnight, Fjord Explorer and The Dog Apollo will rattle the core until Big Bucks Crew transforms Jacksonville’s historic Laura Street Trio into a legendary dance floor.
Jazz Fest After Dark programs 9 downtown Jax venues with over 60 acts for free, and is completely free to attend. So think of your ticket to the #JFADjax Downtown Block Party as a means of supporting the continued growth of the event while gaining access to one free beer, food and drink specials, hours of quality entertainment, and the best party Jazz Fest has ever seen.
First 50 tickets are only $1, then $5 until May 21st. $10 at the gate. Purchase here)
