As the fest grows each year, we strive to find the balance between simplicity and badge holder freedom to catch the shows YOU want to see. Here’s the quick rundown on the options for Moontower 2019:
The Satellite Badge: This is where it starts. The Satellite Badge gets you into all Satellite Events during all 4 days of the fest. That’s everything the festival has to offer except for Paramount and Stateside Theatre headliners. To get into any of the Paramount or Stateside headliner shows with a Satellite Badge, you can purchase a separate ticket during the badge holder exclusive pre-sale before tickets go on sale to the public!
The Warrior Badge: Catch 5 headliners – David Spade, Jenny Slate, Nate Bargatze, Sal Vulcano, and Schitt’s Creek – from the “Warrior Zone” in the balcony of the Paramount Theatre. What this badge lacks in prime seats, it makes up for in cheap pricing! Where else can you see 5 of the hottest comics in the country for one low price?
The Nexus Badge: NEW for 2019! Get a clear and unparalleled view of the Paramount stage from the “Nexus Zone” in the Mezzanine (the first section on the 2nd floor). This badge comes with a ticket to 5 Paramount Headliners – David Spade, Jenny Slate, Nate Bargatze, Sal Vulcano, and Schitt’s Creek – as well as priority entry to all Satellite venues. Quantities are limited, so snatch yours up before they’re gone!
The Star Badges: PREMIUM SEATS. FLEXIBILITY. UNLIMITED OPTIONS. With the Star Badge, you can pick your poison. Whether you want to load up on Paramount and Stateside Headliners or mix and match Headliners and Satellite Events, you can build the festival experience you want with a Star Badge. With 4 options to choose from, you can choose the number of headliners you want to see, as well as your seating zone. Headliner events will be chosen and ticketed in advance, and tickets are guaranteed to be in their designated sections. These badges also include priority entry into the Satellite venues, plus concierge service and drink tickets.
Any show at a Satellite Venue is considered a Satellite Event, which means every Moontower event except for headliner shows at the Paramount and Stateside Theatres. All badge types are welcome at Satellite Events, so all you have to do is hop in the correct badge line prior to the Satellite Show of your choice!
When will tickets to Headliners go on sale?
Single tickets to the first group headliner events are on sale now. This includes David Spade, Jenny Slate, and Sal Vulcano & Friends. Phase 2 and 3 headliners will go on sale at a later date to be announced.
When will the rest of the lineup be announced?
More headliners and satellite performers, along with a slew of podcasts and special events, will be announced in early 2019. Relive the amazing lineups from previous years at our archive page.
What about age restrictions? Can underage patrons get into shows?
There is no age restriction on the festival as a whole and minors can purchase badges or single tickets to the Paramount shows. However, some of our Moontower venues are 18+ and, due to their liquor licensing/permit, are not able to let in underage patrons regardless of the event.
The following venues are all ages: Paramount, Stateside at the Paramount, 800 Congress, Antone’s, The Fallout Theater, The Palm Door
These venues are 18+ only: The Parish, Cap City Comedy Club, and The Velv Comedy Lounge.
When/how will I receive my badge(s) or wristbands?
You will receive instructions and a schedule for badge pickup a week prior to the festival. Badges will not be mailed.
Are badges refundable?
All sales are final. There are no refunds on badges for any reason.
Can I upgrade my badge?
Email email@example.com for inquiries regarding upgrading your badge. As long as the other levels are not sold out, we should be able to accommodate.
What time do doors open for performances?
If you’re attending the first show of the night at the Paramount or Stateside Theatres, doors will open one hour before showtime. We recommend getting there early and enjoying a drink. After that, typically doors will open 30 minutes prior to showtime. Other venues will open doors 30 minutes prior to showtime for all shows. These are rules of thumb only and actual times may vary by venue depending on size.
Where do I submit materials to be considered as a performer at the festival?
Thank for your interest in Moontower! Unfortunately, we do not take unsolicited requests for submissions.
