A landmark strategic agreement between Sony & the Blue Note Media Group results in the opening of a new music venue in Manhattan, and sponsorship for the annual Blue Note Jazz Festival each June in New York City.
Opening in Spring 2018, and located in the heart of New York’s Theatre District, the new venue named “Sony Hall” will be owned, operated and programmed by Blue Note. Sony Hall will present world-renowned performing artists across all music genres at capacities of 1,000 standing and 500 seated, with a full-service restaurant/bar and equipped with Sony’s technologies integrated throughout the 12,000 square-foot venue to deliver enhanced entertainment experiences to fans.
Additionally, Sony will sponsor the annual Blue Note Jazz Festival, which has grown into one of the largest music events in New York City. Over 100 events in 10 venues over the course of 30 days, the festival features nightly events at BNEG venues such as Blue Note Jazz Club, Highline Ballroom, BB King Blues Club, and other locations throughout the city.
Additional partnership plans between Sony and Blue Note will be announced in the coming months.
