I am going to buy a ticket for a concert, and the show description says:
- Door time: 7pm
- Curfew: 10pm
I was thinking that curfew means the latest time you can access the venue, is this correct?
Or does it mean the time the concert will finish?

Literally it means "A regulation requiring certain or all people to leave the streets or be at home at a prescribed hour" or "the time at which such a restriction begins or is in effect"Merriam-Webster usually because of political instability in a certain country or province. Here, in the context of a concert it means:
Everybody out by 10.00 pm.
That is, the concert is suposed to be over by 10 pm.
