Jazz fest ticket prices slashed
TO CELEBRATE the Cape Town International Jazz Festival’s (CTIJF) 21st anniversary, event organisers of Africa’s Grandest Gathering have slashed ticket prices to make the festival even more accessible.
The 2020 edition takes place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from March 27-28.
Weekend passes cost R999 – a saving of R291 compared to the 2019 prices – and R649 for a day pass – a saving of R201.
The CTIJF hospitality packages are also on sale, with two-day festival experiences starting from R2999 (excluding VAT).
The star-studded festival will see some of the world’s most acclaimed musicians take to the stage to celebrate 21 years of Africa’s Grandest Gathering.
Over the Past two decades, the CTIJF has brought 2649 musicians to the Mother City, showcasing some of the world’s biggest stars, but also allowing the next generation of talent to grow through its Sustainable Training and Development programme. Through the programme, 2451 pupils have participated in the Music and Careers workshops and 4000 students have attended master classes, allowing them to tap into the knowledge of musical legends at the CTIJF, over the last 13 years.
Another highlight of the festival is the Free Community Concert on Greenmarket Square, which has been attended by more than 162000 since its inception 12 years ago.
With an economic contribution of almost R700 million in 2019, the impact of the festival reaches far beyond the music industry, said festival director Billy Domingo.
“Over 20 unforgettable years, we have brought artists of only the highest calibre to Cape Town. With our experience in providing a platform for jazz excellence, festinos can expect an unforgettable celebration with only the finest performances at the 2020 Festival.
“Festinos have discovered some amazing musical talents at CTIJF over the years, and we will continue to bring the very best talent to Cape Town for our 21st celebration,” Domingo said.
Tickets are on sale at Computicket.
