A WWOZ Brass Pass is your ticket to 7 days (see note above) of Jazz Fest and comes with the following benefits:

  • Brass Passes allow you same-day re-entry to Jazz Fest, unlike regular Jazz Fest tickets.
  • Brass Passes are fully transferable. A different person can use the pass each day of the Fest.
  • Brass Passes grant you access to tables & chairs, shade, fruit, iced coffee, misters and separate bathrooms in the WWOZ Hospitality Tent. See the NOTE below on new Hospitality Tent access rules.
  • You'll also have access to WiFi and device recharging stations.
  • Your Brass Pass purchase comes with a full year's WWOZ membership and a portion of the proceeds go directly to the station so we can keep bringing the music and culture of New Orleans to the Universe.

NOTE: Only Brass Pass holders may gain entry to the WWOZ Hospitality Tent. In order to ensure a safe, quality experience in the Hospitality Tent, we can no longer admit "plus one" guests. However, children 10 & under can enter the WWOZ hospitality tent with a Brass Pass Holder.
