I got an AVS (Address Verification Service) mismatch when attempting to purchase. What now?
Our credit card authorization features require exact AVS matches to protect your purchase. Please confirm with your bank the exact correct credit or debit card billing information on file including name, street address and zip code. The most common errors are omitting a middle initial (if it appears on your card) and an incorrect address. After confirming, please try your order again.
Why aren’t Late Night tickets included in the festival pass?
The DelFest Music Hall is an intimate room with limited capacity; we can sell only a limited number of tickets per night. For a larger capacity festival like DelFest, only a certain number of festival patrons can (or would choose to) attend the Late Night shows. Late Night events are also costly to produce and we strive to keep the festival pass prices as low as possible. Rather than raising the price of the entire festival pass, we sell tickets only to those who wish to attend the Late Night shows. All artists performing in Late Night shows will also perform on the daytime stages.
What’s up with that service fee?
The majority of the per ticket service fee is a significant State of Maryland Admissions and Amusement Tax. The remainder of the service fee covers the overhead charges involved in box office operations not limited to ticketing software fees, labor and more. We make every effort to keep this service charge as low as possible. Thank you for supporting our independent business.
Is camping included with my ticket?
All multi-day passes include on-site camping. However, the on-site parking fee is NOT included. Click for more info on camping and parking. Single day tickets do not include camping.
