How does the ticketing process work?

  • All attendees must be vetted before they can attend/buy tickets for a Research event. Fill out a ticket request.
  • If your ticket request passes the vibe check, we send you an email letting you know that you can now buy tickets.
  • Register with the same email that you used when completing the ticket request.
  • You can now buy tickets!
  • If you have any issues, please contact us at researchseattle1@gmail.com

Why are you making me fill out a Google Form when I'm just trying to dance?

This is part our effort to create a comfortable, safe environment for all attendees. It's rare that someone doesn't comply with our safer space policy and we have to bounce/ban someone. If it does happen, this helps ensure that they're not allowed into future events. 

What if I've already had my ticket request approved for a Research Underground (AKA non-club) event?

Congrats🎉, you don't need to fill a form out again. Just use the same email that you used when you submitted that ticket request when registering your account. If you have any issues, just send us an email at researchseattle1@gmail.com.

Can I tell my friends about Research?

If you can vouch for them, of course! If you bring a guest that doesn't abide by our safer space policy, you may be banned as well.

How much are tickets?

We operate on a tiered ticketing system, with prices typically ranging from $25 to $40.

"The most affluent 20% of Seattle households — roughly 69,000 of the city’s 344,600 households — had an average income of $345,000 in 2020. The least affluent 69,000 households averaged about $18,800 — an extremely small amount in a city with one of the highest costs of living."- The Seattle Times

Although our events often operate on thin margins, we believe that no should be turned away for a lack of funds.

If you need a sponsored ticket, send us an email with your full name, whether you need 1 or 2 tickets, and how much you'd be able to pay.

If you're down with the cause and have the financial means, leave a tip at checkout.

Ticket Exchanges

While we do not offer refunds for our events, if you are no longer able to make it you may transfer your ticket to another Research member. If you are transferring, please email us by 8 PM the day of Research.

Safer Space Policy

We want Research to be a comfortable place for everyone. Failure to comply with the following may result with you being banned from future Research events. These are behaviors that are not allowed…

Non-Consensual Touching

Racist, Homophobic, Transphobic, Sexist or other Discriminatory Language

Leering / Gawking / Creepy Staring

Violence or any type of threatening behavior

Ignoring signage regarding restricted areas.

Also, please be conscious of other people's space. Leave glow toys at home. For the sake of the vibe, 📵 don't use your phone or take pictures on/around the dancefloor. If you think it's kosher to ask the DJ for a song request, you're in the wrong place. Welcome to the underground! 👽
