Midnight Jam

Midnight jam tickets are available, but you must first purchase your festival admission pass.  To purchase any add-on’s, please hit the keep shopping button when placing your order.

One of the more anticipated events at MerleFest is the Midnight Jam, the Saturday after-hours hootenanny that has produced artistic collaborations and one-of-a-kind superstar jams that have become legendary in the festival’s history. This year the Midnight Jam will bear the stamp of The Bluegrass Situation, a popular hub for everything central to the modern roots community.

As in years past, the Midnight Jam will take place in the Walker Center. A separate ticket is required and available for purchase by 4-day and 3-day ticket holders and Saturday only ticket holders. The theater holds only 1130 people and tickets go quickly...photosMidnightJam
