At a glance - an overview of the festival and its programme
VIRTUAL wall2wall Jazz Festival
A Virtual Festival
The Corona virus pandemic has frustrated plans for most live music events and the need to find alternatives has been a priority.
The wall2wall Jazz Festival, promoted by Abergavenny’s Black Mountain Jazz, has been no exception and this year it will be a ‘virtual’ event.
There are different ways of producing a ‘virtual’ music event. Our approach has been to to record the programme live in The Melville Theatre during the summer months and then – keeping to the planned October festival dates – we will stream the resulting videos.
At the early planning stage, we took two important decisions:
- artists should be paid the full fee that they would expect for a live performance; and
- we would engage the very best sound, camera and editing technicians.
These decisions have cost implications and ticketing the festival’s programme is necessary. However, we have kept ticket prices low.
Most events have Early Bird ticket discounts but only for a week or so after the box office opens. If you subscribe to our e-newsletter, or sign up for it – which you can do at the bottom of this page of our website – you will receive a Voucher Code for Early Bird discount tickets.
Video cannot be accessed until their October first streaming date – details are on the programme pages.
They can then be watched by clicking the ‘VIEW VIDEO’ button – this is also on the programme page. A box will appear and you enter the video ‘access code’.
Follow the same procedure to watch the video again – and as often as you wish. It will be available until 20th November 2020.
The ‘access code’ will be on the event ticket, which will be sent to you by email.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any problems.
