Is the Lifetime Membership ticket transferable?
A single ticket can be transferred anytime before the 2019 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 Feb. 22, 23 and 24, 2019 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 at The Lancaster Marriott again this year in the Commonwealth Ballroom where the Arts Expo is.
