Dear TBCMF family, 

As life has returned to virtual normality, it is common knowledge that we will have to learn to live and deal with COVID-19, and we continue to monitor industry guidelines and measures to help protect the health of our customers, artists, crew and communities.

Your support has helped the event survive through Covid and emerge the other side. You have enabled us to continue with the festival. We look forward to welcoming you to another special weekend in the iconic Empress Ballroom and Winter Gardens entertainment complex.

Covid-19 Ticket Guarantee

For your peace of mind our Covid-19 Ticket Guarantee, that should the situation change and we are ever forced to postpone the festival due to Covid-19, tickets will be valid for the following year at the price you have already paid.  Alternatively, if we cancel, you can apply for a full refund.

We know the power of sharing the live music experience, but we must all continue to act responsibly. The safety of you, our artists and our team will always come first in everthing we do.
