ADMISSION EXPECTATIONS

GP Badges do not guarantee entry to any single screening, panel, or event, only admission up to capacity, so we advise our attendees not to purchase a Badge for a single event or individual.

If you only want to see one person, you may very well be disappointed. We do our best to prevent changes in programming, however schedules can change or an opportunity to see that one person simply may not arise. Instead, come because you like a few of the series and attendees, and ultimately because you love TV and you’d like to learn about it, discover new shows, and emerge from the festival with a new group of TV-loving friends like yourself!

BADGE TRANSFER POLICY

While ATX TV Credentials are non-refundable, if you bought a badge and are unable to attend, you can transfer your badge to another person until May 6, 2022 with a $25 service charge.

To transfer your badge to another attendee, please contact our ticketing partners at support@prekindle.com. Include your Festival Badge confirmation number, as well as the name and email of the new Badgeholder.

We are unable to accept badge transfers after May 6, 2022, and no two (2) badges will be printed with the same name, so make a point to get any transfers taken care of promptly!

AGE RESTRICTIONS

You must be 18 years or older to purchase an ATX TV Festival Credential, as some content may not be suitable for anyone under the age of 18.

Attendees between 12 and 17 years of age are allowed to attend ATX TV Festival, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times, and both must have official ATX TV Festival Credential for the event they would like to attend. Children under 12 years of age are not permitted to attend Festival Programming or Events.

WHEN DOES EVERYTHING HAPPEN?

ATX TV Festival Season 11 will take place June 2 – 5, 2022, and our Full Schedule is available HERE. We’ll start announcing programming in January, and keep in mind that Programming and Panelists may be added all the way up to the weeks and days before the festival. Check back often, subscribe to our newsletter, and follow our social channels for updates!

Friendly reminder that Panelist appearances/schedules are based on availability and are not guaranteed. All Programming and Events are subject to change and/or cancellation without notice. We try to keep you updated on these changes as they happen, but remember to check back often!

GETTING YOUR FAST PASSES

To help you have the best festival ever, with your GP Badge, you have access to our Fast Pass reservation system to help secure seats to the Programming you’re most excited about.

EACH GP BADGEHOLDER HAS ACCESS TO THREE (3) FAST PASSES.

Fast Pass reservations are made through the Prekindle lottery system and you’ll receive more info about the lottery process when we’re closer to the Festival. But here’s how it works – in May, you’ll have a window of time where you’ll submit eight (8) different panel or screening preferences in order of priority through the Prekindle’s selection form. The system randomly sets a selection order, and don’t worry – the time at which you submit your selections doesn’t affect your assigned Fast Passes. Fast Passes are assigned one at a time and give each GP Badgeholder their three (3) highest available selections.

Important note — you are only guaranteed three (3) Fast Passes if, and only if, you follow the guidelines and submit eight (8) different panels/screenings by the lottery deadline. If you submit less than eight different selections, you are not guaranteed three (3) Fast Passes. And pro tip, submitting the same piece of programming eight times in no way increases your chances of getting that Fast Pass – all eight will just count as one submission.

USING YOUR FAST PASSES

In order to utilize your Fast Pass, you MUST arrive 20 minutes prior to the scheduled start time to secure a seat. Don’t be tardy because if you arrive less than 20 minutes before the scheduled start time, your Fast Pass is voided.

Fast Passes don’t take up the whole theater/venue capacity – only about a third of a venue can be reserved in the Fast Pass System, thus if you didn’t get a Fast Pass to something, NEVER FEAR! You can still attend!! Your GP Badge grants you access to attend as much General Programming as you would like – Fast Passes were created to alleviate stress and give our attendees peace of mind to a limited number of individually prioritized events.

Having said all of this, friendly reminder that all seating is first-come, first-served (unassigned), and GP Badges aren’t guaranteed a seat in a particular venue, only admission up to capacity. We also often start seating up to 30 minutes prior to the scheduled start time to keep folks from waiting in line in the heat – so if you want your pick of seats, we recommend getting in line early!

FLASH SALE POLICY

From time to time, we offer flash sales, discounting ATX Credentials for a limited time. Flash sale offers cannot be combined with any other offer or discount code. As with any commercial transaction, there is always a chance that a purchased item will go on sale at some point in the future. Our Flash Sale Policy offers price protection in the form of a one-time, partial refund of the purchase price for those who purchased an ATX Credential(s) at full price (Camp Badge at $525 or General Programming “GP” Badge at $325) within seventy-two (72) hours of the start of a flash sale. ATX Credentials purchased with coupons or previous promotional discounts are not eligible for price protection.

To obtain a price adjustment on a qualified purchase, you must email us at TV@atxfestival.com within the seventy-two (72) hour window of a flash sale start date. Please include your name, order number, and when you purchased your Credential in the body of your message. The Flash Sale Policy price protection is not applicable to merchandise, entry fees, or any ATX Credential Walk Up Price (Camp Badge at $525 or General Programming “GP” Badge at $325).

Flash sale price adjustments are not the same as returns, and the Flash Sale Policy does not supersede ATX’s Refund Policy. All sales are final. All events are rain or shine, unless otherwise noted. All panelists, programming, times, and locations are subject to change without notice. No refunds are issued due to a performer or attraction being removed from a festival lineup.

ATX TV COVID POLICY

The safety and health of the ATX TV Community is our top priority.

Based on public health guidelines, we have implemented various health and safety measures to provide all in attendance with the safest experience possible. The COVID-19 Community Level for the City of Austin, as defined by the CDC, is currently LOW.

You will be asked for proof of vaccination or negative test at ATX TV Festival Registration in order to receive your ATX TV Festival Credential. All forms of proof must match your ID, and you can bring/show:

Masks are encouraged, regardless of vaccination status, in indoor public spaces, and in some smaller indoor venues masks may be required for entry, so please make sure to have a mask handy at all times. Attendees should continue to wash their hands frequently and/or use hand sanitizer, and be mindful of social distancing when possible.

If you are sick or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 prior to the Festival, please contact tv@atxfestival.com regarding your ATX TV Festival Credentials and make plans to stay home.

When you pick up your ATX TV Festival Credentials at Registration, you will sign a card acknowledging that you understand and agree to this Health & Safety Policy. By attending any in person ATX TV Festival Season 11 screenings, panels, or events, you knowingly and voluntarily assume all risks related to the exposure to COVID-19 and agree that you will not hold ATX TV liable for any illness that may result.

By purchasing you badge you agree to adhere to the Health & Safety Policy set by ATX TV, and understand that:

THE ATX TV WAY

We work hard to make sure that ATX Festival is a safe, respectful, inclusive, and fun environment for TV lovers from around the world. We know that y’all enjoying being a part of ATX TV because it’s an awesome, laid back community of TV nerds that feel truly at home at TV Camp.

To keep our TV Camp vibe, here’s our basic rule of engagement: Be cool.

When attending any ATX TV physical events, Panelists are TV fans just like you, watching and talking about their work and favorite shows with other TV fans. Feel free to chat with them about the series you just watched, or a series (other than theirs) that you like, but please don’t crowd or swarm. Remember to be cool and give ’em space!

In addition, don’t ask Panelists to sign an enormous stack of pictures or memorabilia. Even taking pictures should be kept at a minimum, if at all – we know it’s hard, but take a mental picture of the awesome moment in time y’all are having. Be present and resist the urge to give them your business card or a DVD of the latest project you produced or script you wrote. We want to make TV Camp as relaxed and fun for them as possible, so they come back!

We’d also like you to be cool while interacting with other folks at the festival. While you, our wonderful attendees, are overwhelmingly friendly, patient, and accommodating — we ask that regardless of how popular the event or how great the excitement, you treat your fellow festival-goers kindness. Same goes for our amazing ATX Volunteers – they’re TV fans just like you, and work incredibly hard to make your festival experience one to remember!
