What's with the name change?
Ask anyone who attended last April's festival and they'll tell you what an amazing experience they had. But it wasn't only the music and arts that captivated our audience; it was the breathtaking atmosphere - the warm breeze, sunset, palm trees, elegant table seating, and artisan food and drink offerings. This is not your typical field festival. It's as if we dropped a major concert event into your garden party. And so, we've renamed our festival the Garden Jam! In addition, we are calling attention to the festival's location - the beautiful Indian Wells Tennis Garden.
What time does the event start?
The gates open at 4:30 PM each day and the first act hits the MAIN stage at 6:30 PM. Arrive early and check out our expanded lifestyle village and our amazing vendors as well as the acts playing on our 2nd stage when gates open at 4:30!
How much is parking?
Parking is free for this event. Enter the Tennis Garden complex at GATE 2 off Washington and enjoy free festival parking.
How late will the event go?
The last act is scheduled to play until approximately 11:00 PM each night.
What are grounds passes? What access do they provide?
Grounds passes are general admission tickets that provide access to the festival site but do not include a table seat. In other words, you can walk the grounds and enjoy all we have to offer. You can grab a seat at one of the unreserved round tables on the grounds or place a blanket on the designated lawn area. Unreserved round table seating is limited and does not guarantee all grounds pass holders a seat. There are great views of the main stage from most all areas of the festival grounds.
When will single day tickets go on sale?
Only 2 Day festival passes will go on-sale to allow patrons to purchase the same seats for both days. Join the INSIDER list on this website and we will notify you of any future changes that may occur.
