If headliner single tickets are included with your badge, or if you purchased headliner single tickets, you will receive digital tickets via email (there are no printed tickets this year).

Are badges refundable?

All sales are final. There are no refunds on badges for any reason.

What is a Satellite Show?

Any show at a Satellite Venue is considered a Satellite Show, which means every Moontower show, except for headliners at the Paramount and Stateside Theatres. All badge types are welcome at Satellite Shows, so all you have to do is hop in the correct badge line prior to the Satellite Show of your choice!
Please Note: Festival badge holders get priority access to Satellite events. In the event that a show reaches capacity before all single ticket holders have been seated, we will process a refund for those remaining tickets. Thank you for your understanding.

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.

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 before showtime for all shows. These are rules of thumb only and actual times may vary by venue depending on size.
