  1. The jazz festival is one of the best events I have attended. However, I miss being on the slopes. When it was on the slopes we still went into town to patronize the bars, restaurants, Alco, Safeway, and 7-11, Attending the event on the slopes added extra ambiance to the festival.

    Attending last year, the entrance to the VIP section caused the people having tiks checked by event staff to block our view. I was thinking that entrances to the VIP section would be better if the entrances were at each side of the section rather than the back. General admission are seated in chairs and blankets, so we are sitting lower than the people standing and our view is often blocked by those going into the VIP section. So having the side entrances is a suggestion

    My main purpose for writing is that I am organizing a bus charter to the 2013 event and having a hard time getting commitments because of lack of an line up announcement. Your website indicates April, but when I called I was told March. Lodging is booking already–the Best Western is completely booked and other are booking up. I am unable to make group reservations for the 3 nites because I can’t show my guests a line-up. They are comparing the lack of line-up to the Essence Festival in New Orleans which is also in July who have already announced the line-up. I have lost guests to the Essence Festival due to this. Can you confirm if we will have a line-up announced in March or April? Obviously March (early March) would be better to get lodging booked and people committed to the event and pay deposits. Not just for us, but for the thousands that attend this event.

    Personally, I feel that the Winter Park Jazz Festival is much better than the Essence Festival due to the ambiance of a mountain resort compared to a smelly big city. I hope you will take advantage of my suggestions which are offered in true sincerity of making the event even better as far as booking and information.

    I hope you will respond as to when the line-up announcement will be made so that we who need to make plans can do so more proactively.

    Sincerely,
