In the wake of a number of organisations not officially affiliated with the Cape Town International Jazz Festival offering hospitality packages for this year's music event outside of the CTICC, the organiser, espAfrika, has issued a cautionary announcement that official festival hospitality can only be held within the festival precinct inside the CTICC. It has also introduced a 'no pass out' policy.

Billy Domingo, COO of espAfrika said that the introduction of a 'no pass-out' policy means that ticket holders will not be allowed to re-enter the festival venue multiple times. "The new ruling was introduced in the interests of safety as well as ticket fraud and aligns the event's systems with those of other top international music events."

He added that the weekend passes were now all sold out but that day passes are still available for R440 per head. "Rosies Stage tickets are R30 per performance and can only be purchased together with a day or weekend pass."

Tickets can be purchased at Computicket outlets, Shoprite Checkers outlets and via the Computicket website. Hospitality tickets can be purchased directly from espAfrika.
