About Ticket Surcharges

The surcharge applied to tickets at OLS is a little different from surcharges at other venues, so here is a little information about our fees:

  • OLS does its best to keep ticket prices low, and much of the ticket revenue goes directly to the artists. As a small, listening room style venue, the number of tickets we can sell is limited and fees help OLS thrive as listening rooms become more rare.
  • Fees helps OLS cover credit card transaction fees and the infrastructure needed to be able to sell tickets.
  • As a small nonprofit venue without a dedicated box office, ticket fees help to cover to cost of staff time who sell tickets.

We appreciate your support of independent venues keeping music the priority and hope to see you at OLS soon!
