FAQ

QUESTIONS REGARDING TICKETS


WHERE CAN I PURCHASE TICKETS?

Tickets can be purchased online at ticketmaster.ca. A limited number of general admission standing tickets for select shows can also be purchased at Rotate This (186 Ossington Ave) and Soundscapes (572 College St) – cash only and it’d be best to call them in advance to ask about availability.


DOES THE DANFORTH HAVE A BOX OFFICE?

Yes, we do – located at the window to the east of the main entrance. Cash and major credit cards accepted. The box office operates only on show days, and opens 1.5 hours prior to the advertised door time. During this time, you are able to purchase tickets to any upcoming show, if available. Note that if a show is sold out, we do not hold additional tickets for walk-up sales at the box office. Also note that the price you pay at the box office is the same that you would pay online, including all fees.


WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY IF I AM NO LONGER ABLE TO ATTEND A SHOW?

All sales are final, and refunds or exchanges are not permitted, including if the support act(s) cancel. Refunds will only be issued if a show is cancelled entirely.


WHERE DO I PICK UP MY WILL CALL TICKETS?

Will Call tickets can be picked up at the Box Office, located at the window to the east of the main entrance. These tickets are available for pick up only on the night of the show, no earlier than 1.5 hours prior to the advertised door time. Be prepared to provide government-issued photo ID and the credit card used to purchase the tickets. The name on the ID must match the name on the order.


ARE TICKET TRANSFERS PERMITTED?

Yes, you are welcome to transfer your tickets if you’d like. No additional step is required for hard tickets or print-at-home e-tickets. For Will Call tickets, you will need to get in touch with Ticketmaster to change the name on the order, as ID matching the name on file must be shown by whoever is picking up the tickets.


HOW DO MY MOBILE / PRINT-AT-HOME TICKETS WORK?

Mobile tickets are accessible via the Ticketmaster app on your phone. Print-at-home tickets are emailed to you ahead of the show and can be printed in advance or scanned from your phone. Note that we do not have public wifi, so it is recommended that you download your tickets in advance so that you have them ready upon arrival. And be sure to turn up your phone’s brightness to the highest setting for easier scanning.


I PURCHASED A TICKET FROM SOMEONE – CAN YOU CHECK IF IT’S LEGITIMATE?

Unfortunately we cannot check the legitimacy of a ticket purchased from a third party until it is scanned at the door for entry. We are not responsible for tickets purchased outside of Ticketmaster, Rotate This, or Soundscapes. Entry will be denied and refunds will not be issued to anyone that presents an invalid or duplicate ticket at the door.

WHAT ARE THE SET TIMES FOR A SPECIFIC SHOW?

WILL I BE ABLE TO WATCH THE SHOW FROM THE FLOOR IF I HAVE A MEZZANINE TICKET, OR VICE VERSA?

Unfortunately not. You must remain in the section for which you purchased your ticket. Note that the mezzanine and balcony have reserved seats, with your section and seat number displayed on the ticket. Depending on the event, the main floor can be either general admission standing (indicated as GA on your ticket) or reserved seating (indicated by a section and seat number on your ticket).


CAN I APPLY FOR MEDIA ACCREDITATION FOR A SPECIFIC SHOW?

Photo and video policies vary by artist, and media passes must be applied for in advance, directly through the promoter of the show (please do not contact the venue to request media accreditation). If you arrive with a professional camera (any DSLR or camera with removal lens) without prior media approval, you will be required to leave your camera at Coat Check, at your expense.


CAN YOU CONSIDER MY BAND FOR AN OPENING SLOT ON A SHOW?

We are not responsible for the booking of acts on a show. All artists are booked directly through the tour or the promoter. Please do not contact the venue regarding band submissions.


THE SHOW IS LISTED AS A 19+ EVENT, BUT CAN I BRING MY TEENAGE SON/DAUGHTER IF I STAY WITH THEM THE ENTIRE TIME?

Unfortunately not. If an event is listed as 19+, no one under the age of 19 is permitted in the venue, under any circumstances. For entry to 19+ shows, you will be required to show valid (not expired) government-issued photo ID.
