At VAULT Festival, we operate “Pay More If You Can” pricing to ensure that our shows remain affordable and accessible to everyone, whilst valuing the work of our artists and promoting increased support for them. Every show will have three price bands to choose from, here’s everything you need to know…
When you go to select your ticket you’ll be given a choice of 3 different price bands. We recommend going with the standard price ticket, but you can opt to go lower or higher. The choice is entirely up to you.
It’s a way of directly supporting the artists you’re seeing on stage with 70% of your ticket price going directly to the artist. The past three years have hit the live performance industry incredibly hard and many artists have been unable to work for months at a time. As a charity, we’re committed to providing opportunities for artists to get back to performing. By paying a bit more for your ticket, you’re helping make the arts more sustainable and more accessible to everyone.
Anyone can choose the lower rate, we’ve put in a suggestion of who they might be for, but we won’t be asking for ID or checking which price band you’ve selected at the door.
We want to make sure everyone who wants to attend the festival is able to, while also making sure artists’ work is valued as it should be. We ask that if you’re able to, please consider paying a bit more for your ticket. It makes a big difference to the artists behind every show you see and ensures we’re able to continue offering the most affordable ticket prices for live performance in London.
