LIVESTREAMS, LIVE TICKETS AND COVID

Each event page indicates whether or not livestream tickets are available. In the event that government COVID restrictions prevent you from attending, either through limiting venue capacity or preventing live audiences from attending entirely, where possible, your in-person tickets will automatically convert to livestream tickets so you can watch the event at home.

Any unavoidable changes will be advertised on the festival website, and through our social media networks. In the event of a cancellation, the ticket price will be refunded.

TICKETING AND COVID ALERT LEVELS: THE SHOW WILL GO ON!

Every ticket comes with a backup plan. This is our main operating principle: no matter what happens with alert levels, we have a festival for you. In brief:

  • Orange & Green levels: Showtime.
  • Red Level: Showtime – with intimate audiences!
    • Our venues will operate with limited capacity to maintain social distancing and comply with health directives.
    • If in-person tickets are sold out, you’ll be able to purchase digital tickets for all events at The Piano.
  • Red Level, if we deem it unsafe to run in venues: Most events will run as livestreams to be watched at home on your laptop / tablet / phone / TV. If you hold in-venue tickets you will automatically be sent livestream tickets. If you hold livestream tickets, these remain valid.
