UPDATED: HI-FI Health Check & Safety Policies

Thank you for your patience and support as we continue to navigate challenges presented by the spread of COVID-19.  Please keep in mind we are a small, locally owned business.  Our number one priority is to ensure shows play as scheduled and do so in the safest way possible.  We gain nothing restricting admission to customers.  Please understand that we are simply doing what is being asked to ensure these shows continue to take place.  For more detail on specific questions visit our FAQ page

What Is A Health Check?

Health Checks are safety protocols instituted by Event Organizers to help attendee and artist exposure to COVID-19.  As a venue, HI-FI does not set or control Health Check guidelines, which is why different events you see at the venue may have different protocols. 

While specific requirements vary across events, some common measures may include but are not limited to: proof of full vaccination against COVID-19, proof of a negative COVID-19 diagnostic test prior to entering the event, or a face-covering requirement. Please check the requirements of your show for event-specific detail. 

When Are Health Checks Required?

The Event Organizer (usually the artist) determines if Health Checks will be required to attend an event. In some instances, the Event Organizer may choose to exceed protocols required by public health or government agencies. We maintain partnerships with local health agencies and abide by all government guidelines. 

What To Do If You Can’t Attend Due To A Health Check

Health Check policies may change at any time.  To be sure, always check our website before heading out to the show.  Additionally, we are constantly updating our messaging and contacting ticket buyers with information on any show changes or requirements.  If a Health Check prevents you from attending a show, contact boxoffice@hifiindy.com to discuss your options. You will find our team very accommodating and supportive of show exchanges and refunds. Please remember there are real people on the other end of your message.  Kindness and understanding go a long way in this world of uncertainty. 

We are only able to support requests for verified tickets purchased through our ticket providers: SeeTickets (HI-FI, Annex, LO-FI, Athenaeum, Garfield Park) & Eventbrite  (The Vogue, The Pavilion).  This means that if you purchased your ticket through a ticket broker, reseller, Facebook Marketplace, Venmo, etc – We are not able to help you.  You must go back to your point of purchase. 

Lastly, we are not able to offer any refunds for credits after a show has already occurred.
