Do yinz still do passes?

We ditched physical day/weekend passes this year; all tickets will be purchased and applied to individual shows. This gives our performers and patrons a way better experience—now, non-headliner shows don’t get lost in the shuffle, and more importantly, we can make sure everyone who expects to see a show has a seat at that show.

But we know purchasing multiples tickets in a single transaction is super convenient, so we are offering bundles of tickets for specific days and experiences here. Also new this year, some shows will be offered “Pay What You Can”. What’s that mean? Check it aht here.
