What should I do when I arrive?

On arrival, just show us the QR code that you received when you booked your festival ticket.

There's no need to print your ticket – just keep your e-ticket safe in your emails or add it to Apple Wallet, and show us the QR code on arrival.

If you have booked multiple tickets, you can share them with your group via email or text. Please share wisely. Once a QR code has been scanned upon entry, it will be deactivated.

Your ticket guarantees access to see the artists performing on the main Donald Gordon Theatre stage.
