Financial Responsibilities

Is the registration fee applied to my balance?
No, the registration fee is a one time, non-refundable fee and is not considered a deposit or credit on your account. The fee per person is in addition to the registration fee.

Will I receive an invoice for my balance due?
Yes, you will receive an initial invoice with your registration information. When you make a payment or number change, you will receive a revised invoice.

When are payments due?
• February 15: first payment (1/2 of the balance due)
• 30 days prior to your festival date: final payment

What happens if I’m late with my payment?
If your payment is late, Great East Music Festivals reserves the right to charge a 4% late fee on the balance due. If your payment is going to be late, please contact our office.

My school may be on vacation when a payment is due; what should I do?
You must be aware of deadline dates to avoid a late fee; school vacations are not an acceptable excuse. **IMPORTANT** If your school office personnel are responsible for processing and mailing your payment, be sure they are aware of deadline dates. This is very important when number changes are involved. It’s not unusual for deadlines to be missed and late fees charged because paperwork or payments were on someone’s desk. A COPY OF THE INVOICE MUST BE INCLUDED WITH ALL PAYMENTS OR NUMBER CHANGES.

How are payments made?
Payments may be made by check or by credit card.

When will I get my refund?
Refunds are issued after the festival date.

Are checks from parents acceptable?
We do not accept individual payments from parents. It must be a school check, bank check or money order. Your parents may not make checks payable to Great East Music Festivals.
