Answers to questions you may have about Lifetime memberships:

Your Lifetime Membership now automatically gets you a VIP ticket each year! No extra charge to be a VIP!

Is the Lifetime Membership ticket transferable?

A single ticket can be transferred anytime before the 2018 festival in case you want to make it a gift.  Just email us here with your name and the name of the person you want to transfer it to. After that you cannot transfer the ticket. That means when you triumphantly enter the great Juke-Joint in the sky at 101 years of age or sooner, your Lifetime Membership goes with you. If you buy a pair, you can choose to assign one to another person at some point or you can maintain the ownership of the membership and bring the guest of your choice each year.

Note:  The ticket date on Lifetime Membership says for March 9,10 and 11, 2018.  Brown Paper Tickets does not have a way to show an open ended purchase.  Rest assured you are in fact buying a lifetime membership good for annual admittance to the festival.  We maintain your name on a list and will have the list each year at ticketing Will Call.  Will Call will be The Lancaster Marriott again this year.

When you go to process your credit card it says it takes Paypal.  Click on that even if you don't have a Paypal account.  They give you the choice of processing through Paypal or you can just run your credit card like you normally would during an internet sale.  Also, If you want a hard ticket mailed to you, be sure to scroll down and make that choice on the order page. They will send you your tickets, no extra charge.

If you prefer to not enter your credit card info on line you may call Brown Paper Tickets directly and order your ticket from a real person. Their number is 1-800-838-3006.
