Apart from world class music, North Sea Jazz also offers quality in food and drinks.
You can find anything from Thai curries to Italian pizzas and from beers to tropical cocktails at the various food stands. To pay for food and drinks you will need special tokens, which can be purchased at the desk in the entrance hall and at token machines (payable by debit card). At the end of the festival, you can return unused tokens for a refund at the desk near the exit.
Shopping for records, books, magazines, musical instruments and much more can be done at stands found at different locations. Original North Sea Jazz items such as T-shirts, bags and posters are for sale at several merchandise stands.
