  1. Intercept Interviews and Online Survey June 2013 N=1,107 2013 Festival Survey Summary Report An Analysis of Visitors’ Demographics and Feedback Regarding the 2013 Festival.

  2. Slide 2 Executive Summary • A total of 1,107 patrons responded to on-site intercept interviews (n=1,054) and a follow-up online (n=53) survey during the Pittsburgh JazzLive International Festival (June 8-9, 2013). • The overall conclusion from this research is that the JazzLive Festival draws an educated, ethnically diverse audience between the ages of 35-64. Attendees said they are very satisfied with the JazzLive Festival, with many visiting for multiple years and hope the Festival will remain free of charge in future years. On average, attendees spend nearly $200 during their visit, excluding hotel costs. • Demographics: • The Festival attracted a broad age range of attendees with 35-64 year-olds representing over half (53%). • As a group, attendees are more highly educated than the general population, being twice as likely to have a post-graduate degree (31%) as other residents in Allegheny County (14%). • Likewise, attendees are twice as likely to be African American (24%) than others in Allegheny County (13%). • Four-in-five are from within the region. Those attending from outside the region has grown steadily since 2011. • Visitation: • About one-third (29%) of 2013 visitors attended last year (2012). Two-thirds (63%) came to the Festival two or more times. • Most attendees came primarily for the music and liked it best of all. • Attendees were nearly twice as likely to learn about the Festival through word-of-mouth than through a paid media channel. • Attendees were three times more likely to travel to the Festival in a personal vehicle than by any other method. • Pairs were the most likely group size, representing nearly half the attendees. • Less than one-in-five (16%) brought children. • Half noticed Festival sponsors. • Two-thirds either attended or planned on attending the Three Rivers Arts Festival. • Three-fourths definitely plan on attending the 2014 Festival and most believe it should remain free of charge.

  15. Slide 15 Festival Satisfaction Compared to Previous Years (Online Only) 18 |How do you feel this year's Festival compares to past JazzLive International Festivals? 19 |Why? How 2013 Compared Selected Comments • Better media, acts, venues, and performers! I wish Chaka could have made it but the Neville’s are great! • More opportunities to meet the artists. • More people, more festive, great talent, loved the jam sessions and hanging with musicians, the festival is obviously growing and it's good to see everyone out there with the opportunity to enjoy music and Pittsburgh. • The choice of entertainment were grade A. The groups and performers were awesome. For next year have a few more nationally know recording artists and not just Chaka Khan. • The music and the jam sessions. • This year and last year's Festival were both EXCELLENT. Base: 53 Two-thirds thought the 2013 Festival was as good or better than 2012. Pittsburgh JazzLive Festival Survey June 2013

  16. Slide 16 Suggested Improvements 5 |What could we improve about the 2013 JazzLive International Festival? • The Jazz Festival needed more space. It was hard to see unless you were sitting or viewing from a parking garage. 2. Have younger talent as well like vocalist, Kyle Nelson or a few high school jazz groups will bring out lots of families and people of all ages. • Audio on Stage 1. The announce mic level was consistently, frustratingly low, compared to that on Stage 2. Music at both stages was well mixed and amplified. • Don't schedule two performances that overlap on time when on nearby stages. • Food selection. Is it possible to have a few of the food vendors at the Point for the Arts Festival set up a second location near the Jazz concerts? • I didn't like how there was a VIP section this year. It made it very difficult to get close to the stage. I liked how the front of the stage was more accessible last year to anyone. • I strongly urge you to please consider being mindful of the placement of idling engines when planning next year's events. An otherwise wonderful event was only clouded (literally) by the exhaust fumes that frequently accumulated to sickening levels at and around each of the stages and throughout the sectioned off streets at the event. • I think it is too much going on at the same time which lead to many people having to turn around due to the lack of parking etc. Would it be possible to have the Jazz Festival a different weekend then the Arts Festival? • Would you consider a chair rental? We usually take MegaBus or Greyhound to Pittsburgh because it's a quick trip and much less expensive than driving ourselves. Difficult to travel with chairs and luggage.
