Frequently Asked Questions (and Frequently Given Answers)

The not-so-fun stuff:

Q: Does the 2022 WWMS require Covid-19 Vaccination for all attendees?
A: Yes. In order to hold the Winter Walkabout that you all deserve and still comply with Boulder County Public Health’s Indoor Mask Order, WWMS 2022 will be a Vaccine-Verified event. Everyone associated with the event, Musicians, Attendees, Staff, Volunteers, etc. will be required to provide proof that they have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19. 

Q: Why are you requiring proof of vaccination?
A: Because we want to hold a Winter Walkabout in 2022. And we are following Boulder County Public Health’s guidelines. And we want to keep our community safe and venues & businesses open. Read more about Boulder County Public Health’s masking order

Q: What is considered ‘fully vaccinated’?
A: Per CDC Guidelines, an individual is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after completing a full series of approved vaccines (2 doses of Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccine, or 1 dose of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine). At this time, booster shots are not required to be considered fully vaccinated. 

Q: What will be accepted as proof of vaccination?
A: We will accept: the original hardcopy of your CDC vaccine card, a digital photo or photocopy of the original vaccine card, or the MyColorado app. Please bring your government issued photo ID as well (Driver’s License, State ID card, Military ID, or Passport) so we can match the name on the vaccination card to your face. 

Q: Can I provide proof of a negative test if I don’t want to provide proof of vaccination?
A: No. Unfortunately, Boulder County Public Health does not accept a negative Covid test as a substitute for proof of vaccination. 

Q: Where do I show my proof of vaccination?
A: Vaccination verification will take place on the day of the event at the will-call ticket pickup location (TBK Bank, 401 Coffman St.). Every ticketholder and attendee must show up in person with proof of vaccination to receive a wristband that will allow them access to all WWMS venues. 

Q: If everyone is fully vaccinated, do we have to wear masks?
A: To limit the transmission of the virus and prevent breakthrough cases, we recommend and ask that all attendees wear masks when not actively eating or drinking as a courtesy to fellow festival-goers. As a vaccine verified event, musicians are able to remove their masks when performing. Some venues may have more strict requirements for masking at all times, and ATTENDEES MUST RESPECT EACH VENUE’S POLICIES. 


The more fun stuff:

Q: When and where can I pick up my tickets that I purchased?
A: Tickets will be available for pickup the week before the event (M-F 9-4) at TBK Bank (401 Coffman St.), as well as on the day of the event (Saturday, April 9) at TBK Bank from 12 noon - 5 p.m.

Q: Can I purchase tickets on the day of the event? 
A: A limited number of day-of-event tickets will be available for online and in-person purchase while supplies last. Day-of tickets can be purchased at online through the ‘Purchase Tickets’ link, or at TBK Bank, 401 Coffman St., between 12 noon - 5 p.m. on Saturday, or until sold out.  For in-person purchases, cash is highly encouraged, as access to credit card processing will be limited on-site.

Q: When and where does the Showcase take place?
A: Saturday, April 9th, 2022, from 2:00 – 9:30 p.m. in 11 venues throughout Downtown Longmont.

Q: What does purchasing a ticket get me?
A: The all-inclusive General Admission ticket gets you access to every show on the schedule (entry is not guaranteed based on capacity. See below for more info). In addition to being able to see all these talented local musicians, you'll be helping us provide direct monetary support to our entire lineup of talented local musicians, and all ticketholders will also receive an awesome package of digital bounceback coupons, discounts, and offers from WWMS venues and Downtown businesses. And of course, you'll receive the highly-sought-after 4th annual commemorative groundhog pin (which is really priceless).  

Q: Why are there no VIP Tickets or Afterparty this year? 
A: In the interest of minimizing risk of viral transmission, we’ve decided to skip the Afterparty for 2022. We certainly hope to bring the Afterparty back in future years! 

Q: Does my ticket guarantee me entry in to every show?
A: Not necessarily. The ticket guarantees you ACCESS to every show, but different venues have different capacities, and can’t legally allow more people than that. If there are certain shows you absolutely don’t want to miss out on, we suggest arriving plenty early to make sure you get in before it’s full.

Q: Will I be able to have a seat at all of the performances?
A: We can’t guarantee that everyone will have a seat for every performance. Many venues will have ample seating, but there may be cases where it becomes standing room only. We suggest showing up early to increase the likelihood that you will get a seat for the performance.

Q: If I can’t get in to a venue, am I totally out of luck? 
A: Not necessarily. There will always be multiple shows happening at the same time, so even if one venue is full, you can walk to one of the others that should have room. Or you could wait outside a venue in hopes that someone will leave during the show and you’ll be able to head in. But no guarantees.  

Q: Is the only way to purchase tickets ahead of time online? 
A: That’s the easiest and most convenient way, but if you would like to make your purchase in-person you can come in to the LDDA Office at 320 Main St. We are open Mon-Thurs 8:30-5, and Friday 8:30-4. We can accept Credit Card or Cash. For day-of-event ticket purchases, please see the next question.

Q: I bought my ticket online, how do I get the physical ticket?
A: The ‘ticket’ for the Showcase will be a 2” x 2” button you can pin to your clothing (for convenience, visibility, and the fashion statement). Tickets will be available for pickup the week before the event (M-F 9-5) at TBK Bank (401 Coffman St.), as well as on the day of the event (Saturday, April 9) We will e-mail all ticket purchasers with pickup information the week before the Showcase. 

Q: This sounds like something my whole family would enjoy. Is it a family-friendly event? 
A: Yes, definitely! All ages are welcome to attend. Discretion is advised based on venue and performer - we can't guarantee family-friendly language and content for the entire duration of every single performance, but the event is absolutely family-friendly.  Child (12 and under) tickets are available on a LIMITED BASIS for $10. Please contact ldda@longmontcolorado.gov or call 303-651-8750 to purchase child tickets.

Q: What happens if the WWMS is rescheduled? Or cancelled?
A: Public health guidelines are subject to change at any time, and the WWMS may have to adjust its format accordingly. If the event must be cancelled for any reason, tickets will be transferred to a later date or refunded at face value.

Q: Where can I park?
A: Parking will be available on-street, and in public and venue parking lots. Visit our Parking Page for more information. Please be safe and courteous! 

Q: How do I get around to all the different shows?
A:  All of the venues are within several blocks of each other, Walking is strongly encouraged (we didn't name it the 'Winter Driveabout'), and is probably the fastest, most efficient way to get between shows. 

Q: Are all WWMS musicians compensated?
A: Absolutely! In fact, the WWMS team made the decision to increase the pay per musician for 2022. We at the WWMS and Longmont Creative District believe that compensating artists fairly to help provide a living wage is of utmost importance, especially after an extremely difficult 2 years for artists, musicians, and performers. Your ticket purchase goes directly toward paying WWMS artists. 

Q: Has the ticket cost gone up since the last time the event was held?
A: Yes. We at the WWMS and Longmont Creative District believe that compensating artists fairly to help provide a living wage is of utmost importance, especially after an extremely difficult 2 years for artists, musicians, and performers. We believe the maximum price of $35 for a General Admission ticket is still an incredible value for all the performances you have access to, and we’ve added tiered pricing with early-bird tickets available for as low as $25 per ticket.

Q: What happened to the Food & Drink deals that were offered for ticketholders during past Winter Walkabouts?
A: Because of the need to have more controlled spaces to comply with Public Health guidelines, none of the 2022 WWMS venues will be open to the public. All WWMS performances will be open to ticketholders only. Since all venues are closing to the public for the day, we ask you to patronize them at full menu price as a way to thank them for hosting live local music and making this event possible.  We will be sending out a collection of digital coupons & offers that our past & present venues and supporting businesses have been generous enough to extend to WWMS ticket purchasers as an additional thank-you. 

Q: What if I have other questions?
A: Feel free to e-mail ldda@longmontcolorado.gov or call 303-651-8750. 

Grab your ticket and head downtown for a day and night of what Longmont does best - live local music, unique venues, good vibes, and community spirit!
