Should we go into a Level 2, 3 or 4 scenario the Festival has planned for every outcome. If we have restricted gatherings, then the following will apply:

A RELEASE tickets - These tickets are for the advertised performance and will be honoured.

B RELEASE tickets - Once standard tickets have reached capacity, Second Release tickets will become available. For your safety, if Dunedin returns to Covid Level 2, the Festival will endeavour to deliver two performances of this show to ensure that everyone can enjoy it. If this is the case, Second Release tickets will view the show at the earlier timeslot or alternative date. If there is no second performance these tickets will be refunded. If Dunedin is in Covid Level 1, the advertised timeslot still applies.

C RELEASE tickets - Once Second Release tickets have reached capacity; Third Release will become. If Dunedin is in Covid Level 2 at the time of the Dunedin Arts Festival, these tickets will be refunded.
