GATE LOTTERY PROCEDURE (FOR FESTIVAL ENTRANCE)
A lottery will be in effect to determine priority entrance to the festival during the event. Please refer to the FAQ section for details.
The Swapboard will only be activated once all adult festival passes (Personal and 4-Pack) are sold out. The festival facilitates the exchange of passes via the swap board, but we do not take responsibility for any transactions made. Please exercise caution when exchanging information or money over the internet. On years when Passes are not sold out, the Swapboard will not be activated. During the festival patrons may be selling unwanted tickets at the gate, so you can try your luck there but bring cash and exercise caution when purchasing. The festival does not assume responsibility for any of these transactions. Please do not support scalpers.
