Announced July 29th, 2015:
Adult and Youth tickets sold out quickly, while sales of the allotment for seniors tickets has held steady, so the Edmonton Folk Music Festival is pleased to announce that we will be re-releasing 300 tickets for each of Thursday and Friday evening as YOUTH tickets.
With Of Monsters and Men, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros on those nights, we feel that those nights will have a special appeal to our youth audience. This is a great chance to introduce youth to the folk festival.
Tickets will be $22.00 per night and will go on sale at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday July 29th. Youth tickets are for 12-17 year olds.
Children 11 and under, and Seniors 80 and over are admitted at no charge.
They will be available through the EFMF box office in person or by phone (780)429-1999 as well as through Ticketmaster at in person outlets, by phone and on line. (www.ticketmaster.ca Ph:1-855-985-5000)
Senior tickets are also still available for all four days of the festival. (Seniors tickets are also $22.00 per day)
Senior’s tickets only are available through the box office, during regular box office hours.
