A: PYGMALION is fully programmed and confirmed for 2018. Additionally, we do not field unsolicited offers for future participation for the MUSIC component at PYGMALION.

Q: I need to redeem my tickets. Where do I go?
PYGMALION Will Call Booth located at Krannert Center for the Performing Arts (500 S. Goodwin Urbana, IL) starting on Wednesday September 26. The Booth will be open daily from 4pm – 11pm Wednesday through Saturday.

Q: I wrote a book, can I read from it?
A: If you are a local author to Champaign-Urbana, give us a holler, especially if you are a poet. Otherwise, our lineup is super small and we’ve got a good idea of what we want to present, but thank you for checking!

Q: How do I get involved in the THINK component? I created / invented ________ and I’d like to show people what it’s all about.
A: You created / invented that? Amazing! Please email info@thepygmalionfestival.com and let’s talk!

Q: What about PygHack, how can I or my company get involved?
A: Email us at info@thepygmalionfestival.com!

Q: I’m a journalist / DJ / blogger / etc that wants to cover the festival. How can I get press credentials?
A: Hey we know a thing or two about that, also! We’re interested in hearing a pitch, for sure. Email us at press@thepygmalionfestival.com

Q: Oh, you are on Facebook, and Twitter, and Instagram?
A: Yes, we are. Engage and interact with us herehere, and here. You know the drill.

Q: Are there age limits for the shows? 
A: Most shows are all ages, however any show inside a bar venue in Urbana,  you must be 18+ to enter. Alternatively, you can come with a parent or guardian, but don’t try to pull a fast one. The door people will check, and are very thorough about it.

Q: Festivals suck. When will it all end?
We’re with you. 100%. Watching this all collapse is painful. But we feel like being 14 years deep gives us some perspective. A few things of note about PYGMALION:

  1. We don’t believe in tiered ticketing structures. There are no VIP tickets available, which grant patrons to exceptional seating or lower cost drink prices.
  2. We believe that our patrons and artists are best served performing in small spaces, relative to the size of their stage show.
  3. All seats and areas to engage in performances are intimate and place emphasis on attention given.
  4. The concept of a festival has officially been had. We’re still here, and we’re going to continue to try to do something interesting and memorable. Thanks for sticking with us.

Q: You haven’t answered my question.
A: Totally apologize about that. These FAQ things are annoying to write. Tell you what — if you email us here: info@thepygmalionfestival.com — we will get back with you ASAP and give you the answer to any question you might have. Literally. Any question. Try us.

Q: To whom should I address my inquiry?
A: If you email us, you will get Seth and Patrick. They are pretty much constantly on the job. It’s an addiction.
