Music lovers, festival goers and concert junkies had plans for the summer; to see their favorite musicians perform live, to sail on seas and attend some of the most exorbitant parties on yachts until the corona virus came into the picture thereby changing fans’ minds and cancelling their plans for Summer 2020. For the worst part, these fans are stuck at home without jobs and broke still, they cannot make money to cover up the expenses they have made with the tickets bought online or physically. The only thing on their mind will be how they can get back their hard-earned money and use it to stock up with their basic needs. 

It should not be surprising that consumers spent an estimated cost of $3.5 billion on tickets in the U.S. for concerts and festivals this summer. (Source: Billboard), and there will not be concerts or festivals until June (or more till next year). 

Ariiya tickets

Tickets purchased here are refunded by the organizers when the buyer’s information on the database of Ariya tickets are sent. But the hassle in calling for refunds on tickets plus fees for all canceled shows’ tickets takes time. Refunds are paid automatically to the original buyer’s preferred method of payment used at time of purchase.

Ticketmaster

Ticketmaster offers a refund on tickets plus fees for all canceled shows’ tickets sold on the platform. Refunds are paid automatically to the original buyer’s preferred method of payment used at time of purchase. Live music fans should then expect to receive a refund no more than 30 days after an event is cancelled.

For postponed shows promoted by Live Nation and AEG Presents, fans have been receiving emails from Ticketmaster for most rescheduled shows between March and June. Both the rescheduled date and information about refunds have been communicated.

Eventbrite

All music fans need to do is to visit the website of the venue hosting the show or the festival they had planned to attend. 

If an event is canceled by the organizer, the entire purchase ticket and any Eventbrite fees will be refunded. If the event was postponed by the organizer, Eventbrite will connect with the organizer directly to address questions about rescheduled dates, possible refunds or event details. Event organizers respond within one week (two business days if fans paid through PayPal).
