Before You Arrive

If you purchased your tickets before the festival, you should have received an email confirmation containing PDF attachments of your tickets and passes. Please print these off and bring them to the festival. There, we will exchange them for your wristbands, parking passes and campsite passes.

If you waited to buy your tickets, you can still buy admission and camping passes at the festival.
