SHOWS THAT DO REQUIRE YOU TO PICK UP TICKETS FROM KUTX (AND HOW TO DO THAT)
If you won tickets to a show that’s a month or more away, we might not yet have your tickets in-hand. If you’re waiting for tickets to the following, we’ll email you when they’re ready:
Kings of Leon (5/9)These are in! Call ahead.
The Black Angels (5/20)These are in! Call ahead.
- Sturgill Simpson (9/9)
- Descendents (9/23)
Don’t see your show listed above? That means your hard tickets are probably ready for pickup at the KUTX front desk. However:
- Give us at least one business day to get them ready, especially if you won them on a weekend, because Mondays are hard on everyone. Also …
highly recommendinsist that you call first before making the trip to ensure your tickets are ready, because nobody wants to make a drive in Austin for no reason. You can call the KUTX Front Desk at (512) 471-1631 and a nice person will check to see if your tickets are ready before you embark upon a crazy-making drive across town.
When to Pick Up Your Tickets
Hours: KUTX is open for business Monday-Friday, 8 A.M. to 5 P.M.
THIS PART IS SUPER IMPORTANT, SO READ IT CAREFULLY: KUTX is closed weekends and holidays. This means if your show falls on a weekend or holiday, you’ll need to pick your tickets up by 5 P.M. the business day prior. We are not able to give you your tickets on a weekend or holiday, so please do not ask this of us, because we will say no, and we hate saying no (but we’ll say it anyway.)
Where To Pick Up Your Tickets
Directions: Once you’ve called to confirm that your tickets are available, you may pick them up from our front desk. KUTX is located in the Belo Center for New Media, on the corner of Dean Keeton and Guadalupe, on the campus of the University of Texas (the exact address is 300 W. Dean Keeton, 78712.) We’re on the first floor, at the west end of the building (you’ll see big metal letters over our lobby door.)
Parking! WE HAVE PARKING! When picking up tickets, you may park in the alley behind the Belo Center for New Media building in any space marked “30 MINUTES WITH FLASHERS.” The alley entrance is located off of Whittis Avenue. Remember to turn on your flashers (some call them “hazards”) or you might be ticketed by the University of Texas. And then it really wouldn’t be a free show anymore, would it?
Questions We Get Sometimes
I can’t make it to KUTX. Can someone else pick up my tickets for me?
Sure! Just call the front desk and let them know the name of the person who’ll be picking them up.
My tickets are Will Call, but I can’t go to the show. Can I give them to a friend?
Maybe. If it’s still a week out from the show, let us know – we may be able to change the name. If it’s the day of the event (or last business day before), we’ve probably already submitted the list, at which point the matter is between you and the venue box office.
It’s Sunday and I forgot to pick up my tickets and the show is tonight! Can someone meet me at the station to give me my tickets?
