JAM IN THE 'DAM 2006: INFO & PRE-SALE

Following the unprecedented success of this year's first ever international multi-band festival in Amsterdam at the legendary Melkweg, Vision International is proud to announce that in 2006, we are expanding to TWO THREE-DAY SHOWS. They will be held on back-to-back weeks, at the fan-friendly venue that hosted us so well in March.

Jam in the Dam's "Eerste Week" will be March 12-13-14 and the "Tweede Week" will be March 19-20-21. For the really dedicated, there will be a limited number of discounted tickets, good for both weekends, complete with four days in between to recharge.

The line-ups are as follows:

Eerste Week (March 12-13-14)
Disco Biscuits
Yonder Mountain String Band
Galactic
The New Deal

Tweede Week (March 19-20-21)
Umphrey's McGee
Sound Tribe Sector 9
North Mississippi Allstars
Benevento/Russo Duo

Each act will play a long two-hour set each night of Jam in the 'Dam, in one of the two venues. There will be overlap, so that we can accommodate all attendees within the two rooms. Even though the total capacity is 1750, we only plan to sell 1500 tickets to each event, so as to keep it very comfortable for all. This worked very well in '05, and rarely, if ever, did either room get overly crowded.

We are offering members of the Jam in the 'Dam, Walther Productions and artist mailing lists the first shot at tickets, with a limited number of pre-sale tickets available starting Wednesday June 29th at NOON Eastern. The General Public on-sale will begin a week later on Wednesday July 6th at NOON Eastern at: jaminthedam.com.

Also, at that time or shortly thereafter, travel packages will be available from Madison House Travel. Due to the nature of the show, there will not be a 'one size fits all' package, but packages will include deals on airfares, hotels, and offer travel insurance. Show passes can also be included, but not discounted further.

BUY EARLY AND SAVE $30 ON YOUR PASS!

Early-Bird Passes will be sold at $169 per weekend for a limited time only, while supplies last. Once all the Early-Bird passes are sold out, the price will go up to $199 per weekend. We will also have a very limited time offer for a very small quantity of 2-Weekend Passes, good for both the Eerste Week and the Tweede Week shows. For the first week of presales, we will be offering the 2-Weekend passes for a super discounted rate of $245 each, which is a savings of more than $150 on the total cost of purchasing Advance Passes for both weekends. As an added bonus, the first 100 ticket buyers will receive a copy of Joe Pauker's new 2006 edition of "Get Lost: The Cool Guide to Amsterdam."

Pre-sale ticket deal offers can be purchased, starting Wednesday June 29th at Noon Eastern through: www.walthertix.musictoday.com.

Charge by phone by calling 1-800-594-TIXX (8499)

For more information, visit the official Jam in the 'Dam website. Due to the late confirmation of some bands, the site will evolve over the next few weeks. One of the new features will be a short form video from March.

Please be advised that passes are non-refundable, and once purchased, it is the sole responsibility of the buyer to arrange travel, whether through Madison House, or on your own.

Thanks for making the first Jam in the 'Dam over the top. We hope to see you and your friends again next March.
