    ORDER FULFILLMENT

    After purchasing passes you will receive a confirmation email and your name will be added to our registration list. If you do not receive a confirmation, please email playukemail@gmail.com. Print out and bring your email confirmation to the registration table on the second floor of the Nugget resort to receive your Festival Pass lanyards & badges. If you do not have a printer, bring photo ID. You must wear your lanyard/badge to all festival workshops and performances.

     

    COVID SAFETY PRECAUTIONS, ATTENDANCE LIMITATIONS

    We will comply with all state, county, or Nugget safety requirements that may be in place. As of early June, mask requirements have been lifted for vaccinated individuals.

     

    - All seating is open except for VIP Reserved section.

    - Workshop seating will be reduced by increasing the space between chairs.

    - The Celebrity Showroom will be open seating except for VIP reserved seats.

     

    Public access to the Foyer Stage, Vendor Marketplace, and Celebrity Showroom cannot be controlled. Because of that and to protect others, it is strongly recommended that you only attend the festival if you will be vaccinated against Covid. We are optimistic that things will be closer to normal by our festival dates, but once again, the majority of our audience (and your humble producers) are mature adults and we want to keep everyone as safe as possible.

    CANCELLATION POLICY

    ALL FESTIVAL PASS SALES ARE FINAL.

    Your safety is paramount and the possibility of ongoing restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic still exists. Therefore, the pass-holder areas of this year's festival will be limited to a smaller number of attendees than normal. In order to ensure that we can produce a festival of the same quality you have come to expect, we must work with financial certainty and will not issue refunds for any reason. 

     

    However, we realize that "life happens," therefore, PASSES ARE FULLY TRANSFERABLE. You are welcome to gift or resell your passes at any time before they are claimed at registration. We will assist you with reselling by adding a “sticky post” to our Facebook page and a listing on our website where you can post your contact information offering passes for resale. All privacy and private sale risks are assumed by you, the pass owner.

     

    If you resell or otherwise wish to transfer passes, please send an email to playukemail@gmail.com, and include:


    - “Pass Transfer” as the subject line

    - The name(s) the pass was purchased under

    - The name(s) of the new pass-holder

    - The number and types of passes being transferred.


    Should the festival be delayed again for any reason, all registration information will automatically be credited toward the new festival dates.

     

    If you have any questions or are unsure of what to buy, please contact me.

    text message 775.220.0995 at any time
    call 775.220.0995 between 9A-9P Pacific time
