FAQ

CEMAFEST IS A FESTIVAL FOR 
ALL ARTS, ALL PEOPLE, ALL AGES
FESTIVAL DATE AND TIME
August 29 - 30, 2020 
Opens 11am daily

\\VIP ADMISSION

GIVEN THE LINE-UP THIS YEAR, EXPECTED DEMAND AND WRISTBAND SALES, IT IS LIKELY THAT SOME VENUES WILL NOT HAVE ROOM FOR WALK-UPS AT ALL. THE ONLY WAY TO GUARANTEE ACCESS TO A SHOW IS GET THERE EARLY WITH A WRISTBAND OR PURCHASE THE VIP PASS. Wristband holders will always have priority access, so be prepared to wait in line.  P.S. – It’s way more economical to just buy a wristband, and way cooler too…and you’re more likely to be able to see and hear more acts spread out over the festival.

\\STAY HYDRATED

Staying hydrated may be the most important element of having a good time at a festival. You will be dancing, which means you will sweat and loose water. For this reason it is important for you to drink water regularly throughout the event. In addition to bottled water that will be available at various bars or food-vending locations, free water stations will be located throughout the event. Any bottle or empty container may be filled up at these locations. Stay hydrated, make sure your friends do too and have a great time!
