CAN I GET A TICKET FOR JUST ONE SHOWCASE?

Please note that advance tickets are not available for individual events, with the exception of the Opening Night Concert, East Coast Music Awards Presented by Rogers and Songwriters' Circle.

Tickets for showcases and other public events may be purchased at the door on a first-come, first-serve basis, subject to capacity.

INDIVIDUAL TICKETS

WHAT DOES "SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY" MEAN?

Each venue has a specific capacity that is allowed in the space at any given time (often set by fire safety rules). If at anytime a venue is at capacity, no more passes or door sales will be allowed in. For pass holders, you can simply move onto the next venue.

The nature of these kinds of events means an ebb and flow of attendance from artists to artist, so more often than not everyone will get into the venue at some point.

ARE THERE DIGITAL TICKETS?

Pass holders: You may receive a digital confirmation for your purchase, but THIS IS NOT YOUR PASS. All passes will need to be picked up at the box office on site during the event.

Single ticketed events: If you have purchase a ticket to single show such as the East Coast Music Awards Presented by Rogers or the Songwriters' Circle, you will receive a digital ticket which is your valid ticket.

WHERE CAN I PICK UP MY PASS?

All event passes will be available for pick up at the main box office on site starting May 1, 2024. More details will be available closer to the event.

WHAT IS A "VIP TABLE"?

VIP Tables are the most glamorous way to experience the East Coast Music Awards Presented by Rogers. For $1000 +HST & Fees, you and 9 guests can be up close to the stage, walk the red carpet, and enjoy food and drink provided by our sponsors during the evening.

CAN I PURCHASE A TICKET OR PASS FROM A THIRD PARTY SELLER?
