Saturday Edgepass





Saturday Edgepass


  • $45 Thursday Edgepass General Admission


Event Details

The 22nd annual Edgefest (October 17 - October 20, 2018) will feature artists who currently populate the new music, avant jazz improvising scene in Chicago. A roster of distinguished, groundbreaking musicians will be featured at the festival along with those who left their city but whose creativity will always be associated with their former home. All share that illusive “Chicago-style centered energy” that has been there ever since King Oliver brought his music there exactly a century ago!

An Edgepass ($160) is available, which allows for admission to all events, Wednesday through Saturday, as well as a special dinner Wednesday evening with our Edgefest artists. This Saturday daypass is $60, which allows for admission to all events on Saturday. 

Edgepasses may be paid for by cash, check, or credit (to KCH) and picked up at Kerrytown Concert House at any time during the festival. Payment for individual concert seats may also be made by cash, check, or credit at the door of each concert site beginning one half hour prior to each show. All seating reserved through phone or e-mail is guaranteed only until performances are scheduled to begin.
