Daily Hive recently spoke with Hadfield, who said Elevate is an opportunity to “bring a bunch of bright people together” in the city he’s proud to call home. 

“People are ready for the exchange of ideas and the interaction with other people, and how that just percolates into new directions in life,” Hadfield told Daily Hive.

This year’s festival is filled with opportunities to learn, as Hadfield said, to co-create and celebrate all under one roof.

General admission tickets are available for $350, while youth tickets (for those 25 and under) are on sale for $175.
