I’ve purchased a festival pass, how to I access the events?
You will receive an email from Celtic Connections (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the time of purchase which will give you direct access to all currently available content. Alternatively, you can find all the content on our Vimeo site under the festival pass product. After your initial purchase you will not receive any further emails, instead you will need to log in to your account and the performances will appear at the scheduled times. Please note, content will only be available for one week after the on-air date, so purchases made after 22nd January will not include every show
I don't know my log in details, what do I do?
Your log in details will be the same ones that you created when you booked your pass.

- If you only see an option to pay then you need to log in. You can do that by navigating to the top right corner of the site where it says 'sign in'
