Every year, some of our fans think that buying a wristband via Craigslist, StubHub, or any broker site will save them some cash and allow them to access the festival. Unfortunately, many of these are either already used or are counterfeits. Once a wristband has changed hands from its original owner, there is nothing we can do to remedy any issues.
If you want 100% confidence, you must purchase your Tickets at www.seahearnowfestival.com/tickets every single time.
Often times, fans will try to sell their wristbands to others if they cannot attend a certain day. Unfortunately, the removing of a wristband automatically voids it. Our security team will ensure that every wristband has not been tampered with. If caught, you will be escorted away from the festival grounds.
All of this being said, there is an official ticket exchange where you can sell your ticket if you no longer plan to attend, and where you can legitimately buy a ticket from another fan without the risk of being scammed. Please check back closer to the festival for a link to the verified resale link.
