What is a vNAF Pass?
Festival shows are bundled into 11 days – and passes are a once-off, easy way to access them.
1. vNAF Festival Pass – R600 – This gives you access to all the shows on the site as they become available over the 11 days. You can view them until 16 July. It includes Standard Bank Jazz Festival, but excludes the vFringe. Excellent value for money.
2. Jazz Pass – R500 – This gives you access to all the shows on the Standard Bank Jazz Festival Line-up. Excludes the vFringe.
3. Day passes – R80 – Choose which day you would like to delve into, and buy a pass for that day. You can view shows from the time they premiere until 16 July.
Can I still buy a Day Pass even though the date has passed?
Yes, each day pass is available to purchase for the duration of the Festival – whether or not that date has passed.
Does the full vNAF Festival pass include the jazz?
Yes, the events on the Standard Bank Jazz Festival are included in the full vNAF Festival pass, as well as the Day Festival Pass. vFringe shows are not included.
Are there live performances?
Yes, there are live shows on the Daily Line-Up. While the majority of live events will be recorded so you will be able to catch them afterwards, a few are exclusively live – so don’t miss those, or you’ll miss out!
Oh no! I missed a show. Is it still available to view?
Yes, the majority of live shows will be recorded, so you can catch them on demand after they first screen. All the content on the site will be available to view from the day it becomes available until 16 July 2020.
Are there free events? And do I need a pass to watch free events?
Yes! Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, a lot of content on the Festival programme is free to view: live events, all Creativate workshops and webinars, all exhibitions, the Virtual Green market place and the Fringe Visual Art. Explore our website – there are many delights to uncover.
How do I watch shows on the vFringe?
The vFringe are video on demand shows, so can be watched at any time that suits you. All shows on the vFringe are sold as individual tickets (and are not included in the Passes). 90% of the proceeds of these tickets go to the artists themselves. Browse the vFringe event pages, choose what you want to see, add the shows to your basket by clicking the ‘Buy Ticket’ button. Checkout and you’ll receive a confirmation email. Go to the event page and click on the play icon on the video window. (Make sure you are logged in to the site.)
