Important to know!
Waterfront Blues Festival 2016
You can't get in without a pass!

blues festival pass logoThere are all kinds of passes, but think about getting a Zydeco Buddy Pass to support Zydeco at the Festival. They are only available until May 31st.

ZYDECO BUDDY PASS $70: This pass option disappears on May 31st, so don’t wait any longer to purchase one. It gives you early entry, & priority re-entry anytime without having to wait in line, even if the gates have been closed due to overcrowding. You are a VIP & will receive a WBF button! Just go to the front of the line & flash your button. It gives you admission to the whole festival (not just zydeco!).

Also, you receive free entry to the after-hours concerts in the Marriott Hotel—if you can stay awake that late!

If you choose the Zydeco Buddy Pass, you will automatically  be entered in the OFB system as a zydeco supporter. Use www.tickettomato.com/event/3573  to buy this pass. It is not available on the Blues Festival website.

All passes, at every level, admit you to all the music at the festival. Regular passes, from Sponsor down to the single day passes, are available at:
