EDMONTON FESTIVAL TICKETS
Weekend passes will be on sale to the general public on Saturday, March 28 at 8 am MT through the Six Shooter webstore. There will also be a limited number of passes available through Blackbyrd Myoozik (10442 Whyte Avenue, Edmonton).
We are moving to a digital system this year. Our team, John Meloche the Webstore Designer, and Sarah Sleeth, the Webstore Manager Extraordinaire, have been working feverishly to bring you a spanking new store with a paperless ticketing system, and all for the low low surcharge of just two bucks. When you purchase a ticket, you will be sent an electronic ticket that you can print out or save on your phone in exchange for a wristband at the door.
People who bought a weekend pass in 2014 are invited to purchase their 2015 weekend passes in advance, starting Friday, March 27 at 8 am MT.
These are limited to 2 per buyer.
If you are a previous weekend passholder, go to the webstore on or after Wednesday March 25 at 8am, sign in and get a password recovery (because we are moving to a digital system for tickets, we needed to change our webstore). Reset your password, and once you do that, all your information should be there. Tickets will be visible to you on Friday, March 27.
All weekend pass buyers will be sent a FREE digital sampler from Six Shooter Records.
Single tickets go on sale on April 30, 2015 at 8 am MT.

TRANSFERABLE VS NON-TRANSFERABLE
The non-transferable option is for those intending to come for the entire weekend. We will send you a single barcoded ticket to exchange at the gates for a weekend wristband that will be valid for all three days. Don’t take it off! If your wristband appears to have been tampered with, it will be considered null and void. We will replace damaged wristbands at the box office with proof of purchase and photo ID. We will not replace lost wristbands.
The transferable option allows you to share your weekend pass with others. We will send you 3 individual barcoded tickets, each of which can be exchanged for a single-day wristband on the corresponding day of the festival.
If you buy a non-transferable pass and then want to upgrade to a transferable pass, you can do so only at the box office. The upgrade fee is $30, cash only.
Youth pricing is in effect for youths aged 13 – 17. Senior pricing is in effect for those aged 65+. Because we have a limited capacity, we are not able to offer free admission to seniors.
This year, CHILDREN ages 12 and under are admitted free of charge.
SEATING is general admission. We are implementing the same seating policies as last year. Check the FAQ for more detail.
Tickets are refundable only in the instance of the event being cancelled. Individual artist cancellations will not trigger event cancellation. If one occurs, we will do our best to bring in a replacement artist of similar marquee value.
PRICING + CAPACITY
In 2014, based on audience feedback, we raised ticket prices by 10% to reflect a 10% reduction in capacity for your comfort and enjoyment of the festival. We are now capped at 3000 patrons per day.
In 2015, we have had to raise the price by another 10-15%, largely due to the decrease of the value of the Canadian dollar. Most of the international artists (who are paid in USD) were booked before the dollar dropped so dramatically, and in order to keep rocking this festival year after year, this increase is necessary.
In good pricing news, we have dropped the child pass and are now admitting children aged 12 and under free of charge.
Please note that pricing will increase after July 10.
