Tix and Show FAQ

What time do your shows start?

Each show is different, but generally, the shows start one hour after doors open. So for example, if doors are at 7, the first act will begin at 8. Headliners normally don’t take the stage until 10. But check our Facebook page or Twitter feed for the day of show updates.

Can I bring a camera?

Sure, consumer-grade, point-and-shoot cameras are always allowed. But professional photography provisions vary on a show-to-show basis. Removable lenses are considered Professional Photography. Please email solutions [at] greenbeltevents [dot] com to find out if a photo pass is required.

What about taping?

Taping is welcome and encouraged as long as your mics aren’t obtrusive or get in the way of the audience and as long as the band allows it.
