Yes, you read that right: No more ticket service charges! We are thrilled to announce that ticketing for Concerts from the Library of Congress events will be powered by Eventbrite! We now offer you an easy, convenient and completely FREE way to obtain tickets to events on the Capitol Hill Campus.

Due to the Library's security procedures, we strongly urge patrons to arrive thirty minutes before the start of each event.

Latecomers will be seated at a time determined by the artists for each concert. Reserved tickets not claimed by five minutes before the beginning of the event will be distributed to standby patrons.

RUSH Space Available Passes for Sold Out Events

Some concerts will be listed as SOLD OUT. Don’t let this deter you! Over 99% of the time you can still come and see the show. A number of RUSH Space Available Passes will be available starting 2 hours before each performance. Patrons are strongly encouraged to try for a RUSH Pass at the door. Due to no-shows and returned tickets, some seats are ALWAYS available for sold out performances at curtain. RUSH Passes are offered on a space-available basis, and while seats are not guaranteed, you have an EXCELLENT chance to attend the event without an advance ticket.
