The direct link is in the title of each session on the daily schedule (password protected) for those who have booked full weekend tickets (page password in your ticket details). For those who have booked individual events, the meeting link and ID/password is in your ticket details. There are three ways to join a Zoom meeting:
- Click on the link for the meeting. If you’re given a choice to download the Zoom app, do so; if you’re asked to join with computer audio, do so.
- On a desktop or laptop, go to zoom.us on your browser. Then, where it says ‘join meeting’, enter the Meeting ID and Passcode. If you’re given a choice to download the Zoom app, do so; if you’re asked to join with computer audio, do so.
- On a smartphone or tablet, download the Zoom app. Where it says ‘join meeting’, enter the Meeting ID and Passcode and follow the instructions including confirming when it asks you to ‘join using internet audio’.
Note: Some sessions are held in breakout rooms. Click here for a help document if you are not sure how to use breakout rooms.
You can alter the size of what you’re viewing by clicking at the top of the screen next to ‘shared screen’.
You need to make sure that you have the latest version of Zoom and, if you want to lead tunes in Jam sessions, you need to enable original sound. Please see this document for information about upgrading Zoom and enabling original sound on your device.
If you have difficulties with joining the Zoom meeting over the internet, you can dial in using an ordinary phone (calls charged at your usual rate). You can find a number for every country here: https://us02web.zoom.us/u/keiXaujGf4. Dial the number, then enter the Meeting ID and the passcode.
