Pass It On
Pass It On: The Idea
Made possible by support from Killam REIT, Pass It On is an opportunity for community members to purchase a festival wristband for themselves, while paying it forward to other members in the community. It’s also an opportunity for local businesses to pay it back to the community they’re in.
Ultimately, Pass It On is an opportunity to make HPX accessible to folks in our community on a low or fixed income.
How It Works
Fans buy an HPX wristband through the Pass It On program (regular wristband price, plus 50% extra).
Fans keep their regular wristband, and the 50% extra is matched by Killam REIT, to equal a regular wristband.
United Way distributes the matched wristband to a community member on a low or fixed income.
Everyone enjoys the music!
Pass It On with an HPX Wristband
When you buy a wristband through the Pass It On program, you’ll receive a regular festival wristband for yourself, where you’ll get:
• Access to all venues for the duration of the festival (you may have to wait in line from time to time/first come first served)
• Excludes Arkells and Mother Mother show, however wristband holders are entitled to 50% off the face value of a GA floor ticket to this show (Unique promo code sent the business day following your Wristband purchase. Show ticket must be purchased by Sept. 20).
• Excludes Symphony NS performance
$120 (+ tax & fees)
This cost includes half of a second wristband, which will be matched by Killam REIT and distributed by United Way to a community member on a low or fixed income.

We would like to acknowledge that the festival takes place in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) people first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
