The popular week-long Fast Access passes are scheduled to go on sale TBD.

At-the-Door Admission Details:
Festival attendees without passes will take their places in the Cash Line at each venue. That line will be admitted into the venue as space permits after Fast Access Pass holders are admitted. Without a Fast Access Pass, festival admission is on a show-by-show, cash-at-the-door basis.

Fast Access Pass Details:
Fast Access Pass holders will take their places in the Fast Access Line at each venue on a first-come, first-served basis. With the exception of early shows at the Bluebird Cafe and both shows at 3rd and Lindsley, admission will begin 30 minutes prior to show time for each show. Admission will begin 1 hour prior to show time for each early show at the Bluebird Cafe and both shows at 3rd and Lindsley. There are no “seat holds.”  “Holding a seat” for someone who has not yet been admitted to the venue does not guarantee their admission.  Fire code capacities are determined based on the number of people admitted through the door, not seat availability.
