“Student Rush” Same-Day Tickets

Due to popular demand, we’re excited to offer “Student Rush” tickets again at the 2014 RBC Bluesfest! These will be available at the festival box office ONLY *while supplies last* weekdays from 3PM and weekends from noon. Prices will be available during the festival.

Here’s the scoop:

  • Eligibility - can be purchased by any current student who can present a valid student ID or ISIC card issued in the 2014 academic school year from an educational institution.
  • Quantity - students can purchase two (2) tickets each at the discounted price.
  • Availability - “Student Rush” tickets must be purchased on the date for which they are valid – no advance purchases. So if you want July 5 tickets, show up on July 5, not July 6 or July 8.

“Student Rush” tickets are only available at the festival box office during the hours listed above OR while quantities last. They cannot be purchased online or at outlets. We reserve the right to limit sale or request additional identification from individuals whose eligibility is in doubt. Show us your dorky school ID pic, we promise not to judge.

Expert tips:

  1. Try to arrive at the box office BEFORE 3 PM. Wear sunscreen, bring some friends and stay hydrated!
  2. Bring your school ID. We strongly recommend you bring cash to purchase your tickets. The box office also accepts credit and debit.
  3. No entrance to the festival until the gates open that day – after you’ve got your tickets, feel free to visit the Canadian War Museum, take a walk by the river, or go home and crash until it’s party time.

  • All purchases are non-exchangeable and non-refundable.
