Vulture Festival could best be described as an extravaganza of favs, where everything you love about Vulture comes to life right before your very eyes. Curated by Vulture editors, we’ve got a weekend of live panels with your new favorite TV shows, cast reunions for your old ones, live podcast recordings and, of course, the Vulture Lounge, a pool-side party. Basically, if you love pop culture and making your friends jealous on Instagram, this is where you’ll want to be.
When and where is Vulture Festival?
Vulture Festival is returning to The Hollywood Roosevelt on November 9 - 10, 2019!
What is the Vulture Lounge?
The Vulture Lounge is your post-event hangout space, and can be found located outside by the pool at The Hollywood Roosevelt. There’ll be music, funtivities, a cash bar, photo ops and more! Admission to the Vulture Lounge is complimentary with any individual event ticket.
Access to the Vulture Lounge will be granted on a first-come-first-served basis, and subject to capacity.
How do I purchase tickets?
Once the schedule is announced, you’ll be able to purchase tickets to each event on Saturday and Sunday individually. We’ll be announcing the schedule and lineup soon, so continue to eagerly check the Vulture Festival website or follow Vulture Festival on all social media channels for updates!
What is included with the ticket purchase?
Your ticket is only valid for the event for which the ticket was purchased, but you also get complimentary access to the Vulture Lounge located outside by the pool at The Hollywood Roosevelt. That is, of course, unless you have the all-access pass….
Wait, there’s an all-access pass?
Yes! You can enjoy the ultimate Vulture Festival experience with the Vulture Pass, which includes:
One (1) pass to attend ALL festival events (yes, even those marked as sold out!) on Saturday and Sunday
Preferred seating at festival events
Access to the Vulture Lounge on Saturday and Sunday
How will I receive my ticket?
After purchasing a ticket, you’ll receive a confirmation email and digital ticket directly from Eventbrite. But don’t worry about finding a printer that works, no physical tickets are needed for check-in. The name on the ticket will be added to the event guest list, so all you’ll need to bring is a photo ID to check in.
What time should I get there?
Check-in begins 1 hour prior to the event’s scheduled start time. You must be present, in line no less than 30 minutes prior to the event start time to guarantee admission. Seating is not reserved and will be on a first come, first serve basis. Make sure you allow extra time for entry and try not to bring any large bags/backpacks so we can keep the line moving quickly.
What if an event is sold out?
Standby tickets are offered once advance tickets for an event are SOLD OUT or no longer available. The standby line will form at the event venue approximately 45 minutes prior to the scheduled event start time. Standby tickets are the same price as advance tickets, payable upon entry, and there’s a limit of 1 ticket per person. Because it’s standby, admittance is not guaranteed and based on availability. The Standby line will ONLY be offered at The Hollywood Roosevelt, no other venues will feature a Standby line.
Can I refund my ticket?
All ticket sales are final. No refunds, no exchanges permitted.
Is there an age restriction?
No! Vulture Festival is open to all ages.
Some restrictions may apply within the Vulture Lounge.
Is there valet on site?
Valet is not included in your festival ticket however, the hotel does have on-site valet parking based on availability and at your own expense.
Can I take pictures?
You are welcome to take photos throughout the event. Please do not record or live stream during any events, and there’s definitely no flash photography. After the event, please respect that everyone has a right to their privacy. If someone asks not to have their picture taken, please respect their wishes and don’t be a weirdo.
Autographs/meet & greets
If talent chooses to interact with fans, that’s up to them and their very busy schedules. But please be cool and respect the personal space and privacy of the participants and understand that interactions with stars are not guaranteed.
