Q: When and where does the Showcase take place? A: Saturday, February 4th, 2023, from 2:00 – 9:00 p.m. in 13 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 this year? A: We’ve decided to skip the "Official" VIP and Artists Afterparty for 2023. However, keep your eyes and ears peeled for some 'unofficial' afterparties in the works!
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 on the day of the event, Saturday, February 4, at the will-call / box office location, Dry Land Distillers, 519 Main St. We will e-mail all ticket purchasers with pickup information the week before the Showcase.
Q: What's this I hear about a Silent Disco? What and where is that? A: During the WWMS from 3-4pm and 4:45-6pm, Old Town Marketplace at 332 Main Street will host the first ever Winter Walkabout Silent Disco! WWMS ticketholders can grab a pair of headphones and choose which music they’d like to listen (and dance!) to while exploring the OTM and its eclectic mix of shops and businesses. Grab a drink or an empanada, stroll and shop at one of , all while listening to a fun, high-energy music mix of your choosing. Free with WWMS ticket.
Q: What's about the Musicians Market? What and where is that? A: Visit Dry Land Distillers at 519 Main St. (between 5th & 6th Ave. on the west side of Main, just north of Longmont Theatre Company) from 2-10pm to support your favorite WWMS artists directly by purchasing merchandise, and maybe even say hi to a few of them! NEW THIS YEAR - all WWMS ticketholders will get $2 off any cocktail, or $5 off any bottle inside the Dry Land tasting room during the WWMS.
Q: I think there have been afterparties in past years. Is that happening again? A: There's an "unofficial" afterparty! All WWMS attendees are welcome to join DJ Drake at The Times Collaborative (338 Main St.) for a late-night 80's dance party with food and drink available for purchase! The party starts at 8:30 and will go until around 11! WWMS ticketholders get free entry, and anyone else can pay a cover at the door.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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. You can also purchase merchandise directly from artists at the Musicians Market, held at Dry Land Distillers (519 Main St.) from 2-10pm the day of the festival.
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 3 years for artists, musicians, and performers. We believe the maximum price of $40 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.
