WHY GET THE PASS?

The XRIJF Club Pass allows you to sample music from some of the finest artists from throughout the world,  You can come and go from venues as you please and save off the individual entry cover charges of $35 for Kilbourn Hall and $30 at all other Club Pass venues.  It's also a great gift and perfect for entertaining clients and business associates at Rochester’s signature summer event!  

If you use your pass for just two shows a day for nine days, the individual ticket cost would be almost $600. Most people attend an average of five shows a day. The savings add up, and you have the freedom and flexibility to see as many shows as you want each day. Just show your pass at the door and enjoy the music!
