TICKET INFORMATION

WHAT IS A TICKET “TIER” EX. TIER 1, TIER 2)

Ticket tiers can more accurately be called ticket pricing tiers. Ticket pricing tiers are our way of rewarding fans who purchase their DCMF tickets early. All tiers of the same ticket type are the same exact ticket, just at a different price. The Tier 1 prices are the lowest price, and when they sell out, we roll into selling tier 2. When tier 2 sells out, we roll into selling tier 3, etc.

 

IS IT OK TO BUY FROM A THIRD PARTY?

Only wristbands purchased through the Ticketmaster portal on our website are guaranteed to be authentic, with properly coded technology. If you want 100% confidence in your ticket purchase, you should only purchase your tickets through the link on our tickets page. In the event of festival cancellation, your tickets may only be refunded when purchased through our official site. Tickets from other websites or resellers cannot be verified by the festival. WE DO NOT WANT YOU TO GET SCAMMED! Please be aware:

  • We are not responsible for any counterfeit tickets or wristbands.

  • In addition, any wristbands reported lost or stolen will have their barcode deactivated and will not be valid.

  • For your own protection, please do not purchase wristbands from any source other than DCMF2019.com or your most trusted friends and family. Fake or deactivated wristbands may look like the real thing but they will be identified by our scanning system at the front gates.

  • Those in possession of fake wristbands – or ones reported lost or stolen – will not be admitted to the festival.

  • Removing a wristband automatically voids it (unless by accident or for safety reasons, in which case you need to get a replacement wristband from a customer service booth at the festival – this will require you to prove your purchase information). Festival Security will check every wristband to assure it has not been removed or passed between multiple people.

 

WHEN WILL MY WRISTBAND SHIP?

Don’t panic. Wristbands will ship in June. The longer you have them, the longer you have to lose them!
