How can I purchase passes?

Pre-purchase tickets in advance. You can purchase tickets here.

Day of tickets will be available if the festival does not sell out. You will still need to pre-purchase the ticket before coming into the Festival. Tickets are valid during the entire entrance operating hours.

You are able to transfer a ticket to a friend! Just forward them the ticket – no need to worry about calling us or changing the name on the ticket, as we will be scanning people in and the name on the ticket does not have to match the name on the ID.

Can I go to the Festival if I don’t have a pre-purchased ticket?

YES – You can pay when you arrive through our on-line ticketing platform. BUT – If the event sells out, then “day of” tickets may not be available. You may have to wait in line if a line exists.
