The Tragically Hip unable to perform but the show will go on? for free!


“Our thoughts are with The Tragically Hip right now,” says Andrew Bridge, director of Virgin Festivals. “The Virgin Festival will still go ahead as planned at Citadel Hill on July 4 – but now it will be free to anyone and everyone. We continue to have an amazing line-up and it’s sure to be a fantastic day. We invite everyone to come along and enjoy the festival – but be sure to come early so you’re guaranteed a spot.”


Virgin Festival will be reimbursing all current paying ticket holders and guaranteeing their entry. All internet and phone purchases through Ticket Atlantic will be automatically reimbursed to credit card – no action is necessary. All other refunds including purchases made in person or through Future Shop and futureshop.ca will be available at the Metro Centre Box Office as of Tuesday, July 7 for all purchased Virgin Festival tickets. 


Virgin Festival attendees are also encouraged to bring along a non-perishable food item or cash donation to the Parker Street Food Bank. All donations will be collected at the Festival gates.


Entry for non-ticket holders is subject to capacity.
