We’re pleased to announce the first-ever one-day music festival at our home terminal with featured artists from CMJ Music Marathon. The CMJ Music Access Live From T5 concert will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012 at 1 p.m., a collaboration with CMJ that is the first music showcase partnership in our Live From T5′s three-year history. As CMJ’s five-day music marathon kicks off in New York, a Live From T5 show featuring Icona Pop, JJAMZ, Matt Sucich and Kate Earl will serve as the perfect addition to the world’s most important platform for new music discovery. This Live From T5 concert will be held post-security at our Terminal 5 (T5) at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York. Focusing on enhancing the overall customer experience, Live From T5 performances are available exclusively to JetBlue ticketed customers and contest winners.

The TrueBlue Access contest ends on October 11 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

Artists performing at the CMJ Music Access Live From T5 concert include:
Icona Pop – an electro-pop duo made up of Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt. Hailed as one of the best songs of the summer by Entertainment Weekly, Washington Post, Pitchfork and The Fader, this Swedish sensation have taken the States by storm by brandishing their in-your-face, ode to the ’90s, electronic masterpiece “I Love It.” The song will be featured on the forthcoming Iconic EP, set for release on October 16, 2012.
JJAMZ - a pop band comprised of James Valentine (Maroon 5), Jason Boesel (Rilo Kiley/Bright Eyes), Alex Greenwald (Phantom Planet), Michael Runion, and Z Berg (The Like). The band name is an acronym using the first letter of each member’s first name. JJAMZ was formed as a means of escape from each member’s respective bands. Their freshman album, Suicide Pact was released on July 10, 2012. The song “Heartbeat” was featured in a promotional video for an upcoming update for the social media site MySpace.
Matt Sucich - The Astoria, Queens-based singer-songwriter who performed at Bonnaroo in 2012 is known for his soothing voice and heart-breaking lyrics. What appear at first glance to be simple love songs quickly reveal a Wilco- and Iron & Wine-like depth.
Kate Earl – Not long ago, this remarkable young singer was living in tiny Chugiak, Alaska, nursing musical ambitions between shifts at her parents’ gas station. After a move to Los Angeles, Kate released a couple major label albums that garnered acclaim and placements on network TV, yet the process left her lost in someone else’s vision. Kate re-emerges and flourishes on her Downtown Records debut Stronger. Written and recorded with a crew of well-respected Californians, including Brett Dennen and Blake Mills, Stronger shows off the development of a singular voice and finds this thoughtful songwriter coming into her own. With the LP set for release November 19, the first single, “One Woman Army,” came out in September.
Famed British boy band, The Wanted, graced the stages of our Terminal 5 at JFK this Wednesday, with customers, contest winners, and devoted fans excitedly standing by to catch the intimate show and a chance to meet the stars.
