Venue Rules

Please see Alpine Valley Music Theatre’s venue details for more information and a comprehensive list of rules and regulations.

No re-entry is permitted. Farm Aid 2019 is rain or shine. Cancellations will only occur in the event of severe weather or an act of God.

*If you purchased Farm Aid 2019 tickets directly in a Farm Aid pre-sale or from an artist’s fan club, you may not resell them. Farm Aid reserves the right to void any tickets found to be in violation of this policy without issuing a refund. Holders of voided tickets will be denied access to the venue.

This is our effort to thwart the re-sale market. However, many re-sellers have possession of Farm Aid tickets, and this is not prohibited by law. They are charging what the market will bear. Unfortunately, all mark-up over the face value of the ticket does not accrue to Farm Aid. (So yeah, we’re as unhappy with resellers as you are; unfortunately it is out of our control.)
