What time do
gates open?

Gates open at 4:00 p.m. on Friday and 11:00 a.m. on Saturday. Music goes until 11:00 p.m. both nights. All attendees are subject to search upon entry to the festival grounds.

What do I do when
I arrive? What's the
deal with wristbands?

Exchange your ticket for a wristband or buy a ticket at the Ticketing Tent on festival grounds. You must keep your wristband on at all times for re-entry to the ticketed area. You will receive one wristband for the entire weekend. 80/35 is not responsible for lost or broken wristbands and cannot issue new ones — even if you have a ticket stub or broken wristband. If you are only enjoying the free area no wristband is needed.

For the security and safety of all attendees, bags will be checked as you enter festival grounds.

Upon Arrival

If you have a ticket or want to buy a ticket, go to the Ticketing Tent on the festival grounds. If you only want to experience the free areas of the festival, you can enter the festival grounds anywhere.
