Four-day passes to the Edmonton Folk Music Festival sold out within two hours on Wednesday.

“We are extremely grateful for the tremendous support of our patrons,” Producer Terry Wickham said.

“We apologize to patrons who were unable to get through either on our phone lines or our website.”

“The demand was so great that it crashed our phone lines for 90 minutes. There was also overwhelming demand for our online tickets. We directed patrons to go through Ticketmaster when they opened at 10 a.m. This resulted in Ticketmaster’s allotment also selling out quickly.”
