Lawn Ticket Rain Upgrades
Reluctant to purchase lawn tickets due to the chance of rain? Lawn tickets for most concerts can be upgraded at the Tanglewood Box Office if it is raining on the day of a concert for the difference in cost between the lawn price paid and the price of a Shed ticket. Upgrading lawn tickets for Shed seating is subject to availability.
Free Lawn Tickets for Children and Teenagers
For 2013, Tanglewood will offer its free lawn ticket program to all youth under the age of 18 who are accompanied by a parent or other guardian. Tickets are available from the Tanglewood Box Office on the day of the concert. Up to four free children's lawn tickets are offered per parent/guardian. Please note that children under the age of 5 are not permitted in either the Koussevitzky Music Shed or Ozawa Hall during concerts or rehearsals. For popular artist concerts (James Taylor, etc.), paid lawn tickets are required for all guests.
Discounted Tickets for Young Adults

The BSO's $20 Under 40 program will also be available during the 2013 Tanglewood season for BSO and Boston Pops performances in the Shed. Patrons under age 40 may purchase these discounted seats in April 2013 on a first-come, first-served basis, and there may be a limited number of blackout dates.
