Cancellations & Refunds
The Edmonton Rock Music Festival is a place for good friends who share a love of live rock music. More importantly, the event is also a fundraiser to support a children-focused charity - the Centre for Arts and Music.  In rare cases, performers on every festival circuit cancel appearances for good reasons.  Our policy is to find equally awesome replacements. We appreciate your understanding that refunds cannot be provided based upon weather or due to any cancellations. 

Be safe, rock on, and have fun!
