What are the dates for the 2024 Festival?

The 2024 Vancouver Island MusicFest will be held July 12 -14, 2024

There are no rollover tickets from the past.

Vancouver Island MusicFest worked very hard with customers to honour all tickets that were purchased before the pandemic shut things down. Every ticket purchased was offered a choice 2 years in a row.
1. Obtain a refund
2. Keep Tickets
3. Donate tickets

We offered this for 2020 & again when we knew that we would not be allowed to host an in person event for 2021.
Vancouver Island MusicFest did offer a live event in 2022 and all ticket obligations were met for all outstanding tickets.
Any tickets that were not redeemed in 2022 are no longer valid.

The festival is located at the Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds
4839 Headquarters Rd, Courtenay, BC V9J 1P2

Tickets are non-refundable.

Dogs, Cats, Parrots, Alligators (Pets)

We love Pets but we cannot have them on site at MusicFest. Our own pets are on a holiday being well taken care of by friends and we miss them dearly, but they are safe. Please leave your pets at home or make arrangements for them. Any pets left in vehicles around the Festival may be rescued and taken to the S.P.C.A. It gets unbearably hot in our parking lots, folks.

Availability of Day Passes will be announced mid to late May 2024
