Tickets are now available for the 8th Annual Jetaway Music Festival, which will take place on Friday, Nov. 8 from 6:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. and will feature live performances by Grammy winning hip hop artist Nelly, EDM DJ trio Cheat Codes, country star Dylan Scott and more. General admission tickets start at $30; VIP packages inclusive of food and beverages start at $150; and sponsorships start at $1,500. There are also ticket bundles available that include VIP access as well as an overnight stay at The W Hotel Scottsdale starting at $1,000. All proceeds from the event benefit Folds of Honor Arizona.
“This year, we are evolving our event – formerly known as the Weekend Jetaway Culinary Classic and featuring everything from a game to win a private jet to a culinary showcase but always to benefit a local nonprofit partner – to give everyone in the Valley something special,” says Dillan Micus, event co-founder. “We mixed country with pop, dance and rap performances by design to truly make this something people ages 21 to 81 will want to support. But multi-generational music festival for all just didn’t have the same ring to it.”
Nelly, an avid supporter of American service men and women, is taking time away from his busy 20thanniversary touring schedule to co-headline the event, singing all of his hits including “Country Grammar,” “Ride wit Me,” “Hot in Herre,” “Air Force One,” “Dilemma” and many more. Nelly won Grammy Awards in 2003 and 2004 and was named by Billboard as number three Top Artist of the Decade in the mid-2000s.
Cheat Codes is an electronic music DJ trio consisting of KEVI (Kevin Ford), Trevor Dahl, and Matthew Russell based in Los Angeles. The group is notable for their 2016 single “Sex”, which samples the chorus from “Let’s Talk About Sex” by Salt-N-Pepa, and their 2017 single “No Promises”, which featured American pop superstar Demi Lovato.
Dylan Scott is a country music star who is hot of his recent nomination as the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards Best New Country Artist and known for “Makin’ This Boy Go Crazy,” “Hooked,” and “My Girl.”
Beyond the live music, the fundraising event will feature a silent and live auction, notably where Jetlinx and Hakkasan will auction off a roundtrip private jet vacation for four to Las Vegas, inclusive of hotel, show tickets, bottle service at Hakkasan Night Club and more. Also expect culinary creations from The W Hotel Scottsdale as well as beer, wine, cocktails – all for purchase or with VIP ticket packages – a photo booth, dancing and more.
For the fourth year in a row, the event will be hosted on the rooftop of the W Hotel Scottsdale, on its WET Deck, which is located at 7277 E. Camelback Road in Scottsdale.
All net proceeds of this 21 and over event will benefit Folds of Honor, which provides educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members. Jetaway Music Festival is sponsored by AXA Advisors Southwest, On Q Financial, Spellbound Entertainment Group, Jetlinx and The W Scottsdale Hotel. Dress code will be strictly enforced.
