Some last-minute JAS tips

Not all of the music on hand for this weekend’s Jazz Aspen Snowmass June Festival will require a ticket to enjoy the tunes.

Jazz Aspen Snowmass will host a free lawn party on the Aspen Music Festival grounds near the Benedict Music Tent, where live music will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. today and Saturday and 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday.

Two stages will include world jazz from Tizer and the Mezcla Afro-Cuban Allstars. Food booths will be on hand as well, along with full-service bars.

No parking will be available onsite, with the exception of patron/VIP ticket holders.

However, bus service to the music grounds, provided by the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority, will be available.

Also, Jazz Aspen Snowmass has arranged shuttle service to and from Rubey Park Transit Center through Colorado Mountain Express, with shuttles running continuously from 7 to 11 p.m. today and Saturday, and from 6 to 11 p.m. Sunday. WE-cycle also will provide bicycles for those willing to pedal their way to and from the concerts.

Also, no camera, radio or recording devices are allowed inside the Benedict Music Tent. No cellphone photography is permitted either.
