When is the 2017 Friends of the Festival Buying Period?

The 2017 Friends of the Festival Exclusive Buying Period is from March 21 - April 30.

  2. By filling out the form. Return the form by mail, fax, or in person to the Hult Center.

I’m not a Friend (current donor of $125 or more to OBF). Can I still order?

Tickets go on sale to the general public on May 4, 2017.

How do I become a Friend ($125 or more OBF donor)?

You become a member of the Friends of the Festival with gifts of $125 or more. The easiest way is to contribute online and the best time is prior to tickets going on sale in early March.

To make a gift during the Friends Priority ticket period, include a contribution with our printed order form. By including a donation, your order will get priority over non-Friends orders.

What concerts are available?

You can buy tickets for any of the concerts we perform, however discounts apply only to selected concerts and vary by event.

How do I check my Friends status?

Contact Sarah Suponski at 541.346.1319 or suponski@uoregon.edu.

When will I get my tickets?

You can choose to receive your tickets by mail or at will-call. If you choose by mail, you will receive them within 2-4 weeks of ordering (we thank you for your patience). If you choose will-call, pick them up at the Hult Center at your convenience.

What if I pay by order form and my seats/concerts are not available?

If for some reason we need to refund part or all of your portion, we’ll credit your card at the time of the transaction. If you paid by check, we will mail you a refund check separately from the order confirmation. This may take 2-3 weeks from the time the ticket purchase is confirmed. For questions about your seating requests, write to the Hult Center Box Office by email.

What are the service charges?

Service charges apply to all purchases. During the Friends priority purchasing period, service charges are only $5 per order. After that, you’ll pay a per-ticket charge that varies by concert.

Can I place my order by phone?

We do not accept phone orders during the Friends priority purchasing period. You can order by phone starting in May.
