Sit Back and Let WBGO Plan Your Trip
to the Newport Jazz Festival® Day-Travel Packages from Boston & New York to the Festival
Have you ever wanted to go to the world-famous Newport Jazz Festival®,
but didn't want to worry about getting there, paying for parking,
booking a hotel (aren't they usually sold out?), or finding
a music partner to come with you?
WBGO Travel is offering special round-trip buses from Boston and
New York City to the 2013 Newport Jazz Festival® that include admission to
the festival for the full day, food & beverage on the festival grounds, plus a
special screening of the documentary “Jazz On A Summer’s Day,”
which was filmed in Newport at the 1958 festival.
Artists will include Wayne Shorter Quartet with special guest Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Esperanza Spalding, Marcus Miller,
Robert Glasper, Dizzy Gillespie Big Band with Paquito D'Rivera,
Eddie Palmieri, Gregory Porter, and so many more. See festival web site for complete lineup
WBGO buses from Boston are organized in partnership with JazzBoston,
and depart from Wally’s Jazz Club, Boston’s oldest jazz venue. Buses from
New York City are organized in partnership with JazzTimes and depart from Jazz at Lincoln Center's iconic home base at Columbus Circle. All buses
drop off and pick up in Newport right at the festival entrance.
Just think – you get up on the morning of Saturday (Aug 3) or Sunday (Aug 4), head to Jazz at Lincoln Center or Wally’s Jazz Café, board
the air-conditioned luxury coach bus, and arrive fresh and relaxed for the
festival. You will have the whole day to enjoy the music, the food, the beer
and wine bars, and the beautiful sunshine (but don’t forget a hat and sunscreen!).
At the end of the day, hop back onto the bus, share your experiences with others,
or take a well-deserved nap and be back home before you know it.
Then you can tell all your friends that
you experienced one of the greatest jazz
festivals in the world, and all you had to
do was buy a bus ticket.
