HOW MUCH DOES A FESTIVAL BADGE COST?

Just $99 (+ DICE's fees) gets you priority access to The New Colossus Festival from 9-13 March 2022. Depending on venue capacity, badge holders can attend all shows, parties, special events, and the Colossal Conversations panel series. 

CAN I BUY TICKETS TO INDIVIDUAL SHOWS INSTEAD OF A BADGE?

Tickets to individual shows may be available to purchase at the doors of each venue, but are not guaranteed. 

IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT?

Yes, all shows are 21+ and the venue security will check your ID the first time you enter regardless of how old you look. You will likely be turned away from the door without a valid ID such as a driver's license or passport even if you look much older than 21. Bouncers in this city don't mess around!

WHAT'S THE SCHEDULE LOOK LIKE?

We'll be getting started early in the day on March 9th and go until the evening of the 13th. Stay tuned for more info and be sure to follow us on social media for the latest. 

 

CAN I COVER THE FESTIVAL FOR PRESS?

Send us an email and give us the details such as who you write for, etc. 

 

I'D LIKE TO VOLUNTEER, ARE YOU LOOKING FOR HELP?

Email us at info@newcolossusfestival.com with "The New Colossus Volunteer" in the subject line and tell us more about yourself.

 

HOW DO I GET AROUND?

The venues are nearest the F/J/M/Z trains and all are easily walkable. Cabs, car services, and bike shares are super easy to manage in case walking is not possible.  

 

WHERE SHOULD I STAY?

There are numerous hotel options in lower Manhattan. Some are very close to the venues. Google is your friend.

 

WHAT'S THE WEATHER GOING TO BE LIKE?

It's NYC in March. Expect anything. NYC venues and transportation rarely shut down due to heavy snow so be prepared and please check the local forecasts to plan accordingly. 

 

WHAT ABOUT COVID-19?

COVID-19 Disclaimer: We take the global pandemic seriously and firmly believe that everyone’s health and safety are the highest priority. While we cannot predict how life will be in March of 2022, we are confident that we’ll be able to proceed as planned while acting within the guidelines of the experts. There is unfortunately a possibility that unexpected circumstances may occur that will be out of our control and affect programming. If we are ultimately unable to host the festival due to COVID-19, that decision will not be made lightly and plans will be made known at the earliest possible opportunity.
