Ticket ON SALE DATE for All New Customers

Due to an overwhelming number of ticket upgrade requests from current Main Stage ticket holders, the North Carolina Azalea Festival has decided to delay the on sale date for its rescheduled shows in August.

The new on sale date will be Saturday, March 6th, at 10 am EST.

The Azalea Festival, along with its ticketing partner, Etix, has been working to process thousands of ticket upgrades and change of date requests for the upcoming Sublime with Rome | Michael Franti & Spearhead show on Thursday, August 19th and the two Avett Brothers shows, Friday, August 20th and Saturday, August 21st. The ticketing team has not been able to facilitate all of these requests to their satisfaction, so, in the best interest of these customers, has decided to delay the sale of new tickets.

The North Carolina Azalea Festival values its customers, and wants to ensure existing ticket holders are taken care of and have their tickets before opening up new sales.

The Azalea Festival is thrilled to see the excitement over these upcoming shows, and is eager to open up sales for everyone to enjoy them!
