Important Registration Policies

By signing up, registrants agree to abide by our Safer Spaces policy. Registrants also grant DCLX permission to use their likeness in photographs in any and all publications and materials without payment or consideration made to them.


Our goal is to make DCLX affordable and accessible to as many people as possible. To that end, we offer a few options to help reduce or mitigate the cost of the event.

Volunteering: Volunteers are paid $15 for every hour-long shift they work. Let us know during checkout if you would like to volunteer, and our volunteer coordinator will get in touch with you close to the event.

Alternative Options: If you cannot afford to pay for a full pass all at once, send an email to We will do our best to work out something that works for all of us.


Pass transfers will be allowed until one week before the event. Free/Complimentary passes are non-transferable.


If you request housing, we will try our best to accommodate you, but cannot guarantee housing. The same goes for volunteering.

You will be prompted to fill out housing and hosting information on your order confirmation page. Missed it? Your order confirmation email should have a link to do fill out the forms as well.

Housing registration will be updated when it is available.


Apparel for pre-order will be updated when it is available.

After the deadline, a limited quantity of apparel will be available.


Swag will be given on a first check-in, first serve basis.

Thank you!
