Please note: ALL attendees–including youth– must pick up a wristband before entering any festival venue. We recommend you arrive at least thirty minutes prior to the first event you want to attend to visit the box office in SW Park Avenue and pick up your wristband. Securing your pass in advance will speed up this process. More info on our FAQs page.
