I got a package through IndieGoGo and now it's sold out and I can't see what perks are included! What's included with my ticket?
Here's a handy dandy reference sheet for all you cool cats and kittens! Click to enlarge!
Will I be able to get these perks after the IndieGoGo ends?
Girl, maybe! Event tickets and tickets to the live shows and drag brunch will be available for purchase at a higher price after the campaign ends, as long as they don’t sell out in pre-sale. If certain ticket types sell out during the campaign, weeeeelll.... then, we may not be able to make them available afterward due to the capacity of the venue. ALL the more reason to pick your perk level ASAP!!
When will I get my ticket to the event?
If you purchased your ticket through IndieGoGo, you should have received an email with your scannable tickets on April 14th or 15th. These were sent to the email address associated with your IndieGoGo account. If you purchased your tickets through ShowClix, you should have received this email directly after purchasing. If you did not receive this email, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can resend it to you.
When will I receive my physical perk items, like the sticker pack or swag pack?
Campaign backers at the Supporter level will receive a survey to collect their shipping address for a mailed exclusive sticker pack, which will be sent out prior to the start of the event.
Campaign backers at the Fest Admission level or higher will be able to pick up their physical perks at the event. Physical perks at the Fest Admission level or higher will not be mailed.
The email address on my IndieGoGo account is wrong. Can you update it for me?
Unfortunately we can’t update your email in IndieGoGo, but luckily there is nothing else coming through that platform! If you shoot us an email at email@example.com we can update your email in ShowClix, our ticket processing system.
Will there be live shows at ObsessedFest?
Yes! There will be two live shows on Friday night and two live shows on Saturday night. Scamfluencers and then Obsessed with Disappeared will be featured on the main stage on Friday night, and Morbid and then True Crime Obsessed on Saturday night!
Tickets for Live Shows can now be purchased individually, and are available to the general public. You do not need to purchase a Fest Admission event ticket in order to attend.
My perk level doesn't include the Drag Brunch, but I want to be there for the fabulousness! Can I add it on separately?
The Drag Brunch has already reached capacity, so we unfortunately will not be able to sell any additional tickets.
Can I upgrade or change my perk level?
There are no perk upgrades available at this time, but event admission and live show tickets are available for purchase here and can be added onto your existing pass!
I’m thinking about coming alone, is that ok?
Of course, solo queen! We are all about our solo fam members and DBs meeting up and becoming best friends for life! Before the event, we’ll be all over the Facebook groups to connect solo travelers, AND we’re cooking up special meetups at the event for people traveling solo or just looking to make new best friends!
What's the difference between Live Show tickets and VIP Live Show tickets?
Glad you asked! Both include admission to the live show for one person. VIP Live Show tickets also include priority seating for the show and a pre-show Q&A with the hosts or other VIP experience.
How does priority seating work?
Before a live show begins, a priority seating section will be set aside in the front rows of the hall. These seats are not assigned, but there will be enough for everyone with priority seating.
Will there be a chance for meet-ups and autographs?
Obsessed Fest is all about connecting listeners with the hosts! There will be tons of meet & greet opportunities throughout the weekend AND live shows will have a VIP option that will include a meet & greet and/or pre-show Q&A. As we get closer to the event, we’ll keep you updated!
Is Obsessed Fest accessible to those with disabilities?
Yes, of course! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and note your specific needs or requests. As we get closer to the event, a member of our team will reach out to discuss in more detail and how we can best accommodate them.
When will tickets go on sale?
Tickets are on sale now, and are available for purchase here!
Can I purchase tickets to the live shows without purchasing an event ticket?
Yes, as long as they don’t sell out! Tickets are available for purchase here.
Does Obsessed Fest have a minimum age requirement to attend?
We don’t have an age requirement, but because some content deals with more adult themes, we recommend that you be at least 14 years old to join us for the weekend.
What are your health & safety policies?
The health and safety of all members of our community are incredibly important to us. Our team is continuing to monitor the latest data and public health advice and assessing our policies in line with these recommendations. Due to local case numbers in Columbus, we are adjusting our health and safety policies in accordance with local safety measures. However we will be monitoring the situation and if the risk level changes, we may reevaluate our policies.
Our updated policy is as follows: attendance at Obsessed Fest will not be contingent upon proof of vaccination. If you experience any symptoms like fever, runny nose, coughing, sore throat, headaches, muscle pain and fatigue, or if a close contact, such as a family member or roommate, tests positive for COVID-19, we strongly urge you not to attend Obsessed Fest. Please email email@example.com and a member of our team will be happy to discuss alternate options with you.
What is the Obsessed Fest refund policy?
As of the end of the IndieGoGo campaign, all Obsessed Fest tickets are non-refundable.
I have a question that wasn’t answered here.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of the team will get back to you.
