INCLUSIVITY & PAY WHAT YOU CAN
Volumes Festival prides itself on being an inclusive event, welcoming music and people from all genres and backgrounds in a safe space.
The festival also believes that everyone should be able to enjoy and experience amazing music, art and community and have set up a new ‘Pay What You Can’ and Early Bird ticketing option this year in an effort to keep the event accessible to all. The first round of both ticketing options have sold out, with a second allocation on sale today from 9AM. All contributions to Volumes Festival go towards supporting the incredible emerging live music and arts community.
