Your value pass to discovery!

The Club Pass is XRIJF's unique pass that gives you access to up to 221 sets of music June 23 - July 1, 2017 at the festival's 13 official Club Pass Series venues.


Because it offers the opportunity to sample music from some of the finest artists from throughout the world. It gives you have the freedom to discover new artists. You can come and go from venues as you please. And, you save off the individual entry cover charges of $35 for Kilbourn Hall and $30 at all other Club Pass venues.

We offer the Club Pass in two convenient options, 3-Day and 9-Day.

  • The 9-day Pass is good all nine days of the festival at all Club Pass venues. $204 + $6 services charges.
  • The 3-day Pass is good any three days (you choose the days) of the festival at all Club Pass venues. $154 + $6 services charges.


If you don't have a Club Pass, you can enter any Club Pass Series show for $30 ($35 Kilbourn Hall), cash only, at the door.  No advance tickets are sold for Club Pass Series Shows and there are no reserved seats. Entry is first-come, first-served for all, whether you pay cash at the door or have a Club Pass.  Since venues may fill to capacity prior to shows so to ensure a better chance of a seat, arrive early and wait in line. Doors open 30 minutes before shows.  See Club Pass Venues below. 

At the early shows at two of our busiest venues, Max of Eastman Place and Kilbourn Hall, we also offer a convenient Save Time in Line system. Check it out!
