Early bird adult registration rate beginning in November 2019 is $89.00 until January 30, 2020 and the student rate (with ID) is only $79.
WHAT IS POWERUP’S OBJECTIVE?
PowerUp is a unique experience in Canada offering the opportunity to spend a weekend with other passionate musicians, learning and creating together. This conference aims to re-ignite your passion for music by learning new techniques that you have never explored, and discovering sounds and ideas you’ve never encountered!
WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?
Early registration is encouraged as many workshops fill up quickly. Workshops without sufficient enrolment may have to be cancelled. Refunds will not be issued for registration cancellation requests received after January 31, 2020. In the event of emergency/illness, you may send an alternative person in your place or leave your registration as a donation. If sending an alternative person, please email us the name and email address of that person. If a participant withdraws from the conference before January 31, 2020, they will receive a refund of the total workshop fee minus a $20 administrative fee. The PowerUp Workshop reserves the right to cancel or reschedule a workshop due to low enrolment or other unforeseen circumstances. If this becomes necessary, PowerUp will contact registrants by email or by telephone at least 4 business days in advance of the start date. The PowerUp Workshop is not responsible for any costs, including but not limited to travel or accommodation expenses. We strongly urge all participants travelling by plane to buy refundable airline tickets in case of workshop cancellations or other unforeseen changes. All policies will be strictly enforced. No exceptions, please. Contact our coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to registering if you have any questions. We will make every effort to ensure the satisfaction of our conference attendees.

WHERE CAN I EAT AT YORK UNIVERSITY DURING THE POWERUP WEEKEND?
York University has a wide selection of eateries on campus, located in York Lanes, a short walk across from where the main workshops are being held.
I CAN ONLY GO FOR ONE DAY? SHOULD I STILL REGISTER?
Because the cost of the entire weekend is so low, one can craft their own weekend so that they can come and go as they please. With over 25 different workshops, there is so much to choose from and registrants attest that no matter how much they attend, they have a transformative experience! If your time is limited, we recommend beginning your journey on Thursday or Friday evening at the first/second mass choir rehearsal and continuing throughout the day on Saturday.
I’VE REGISTERED ONLINE AND/OR ORDERED MY TICKETS - WHERE ARE THEY?
All concert tickets/confirmations are sent via email from Eventbrite. All workshop registrations/confirmations are also sent via email through Eventbrite. You can bring a PDF printout of the ticket or have the ticket scanned straight from your smartphone.
