- Can’t make it both days, but still want to attend either Friday or Saturday? Don’t fret, single day passes are available. Single passes for general admission and VIP went on sale on February 15th. Don’t slack and grab one as soon as possible because the tickets are subject to limited availability.
- Already purchased a pass? Passes began being mailed out on February 17th. *Gasps*, how exhilarating! Once you receive it in the mail, don’t forget to register your wristband.
- Don’t want to hold your items during the festival? Good thing lockers are now available for rent on festival grounds. It’s an efficient, safe, and secure way of storage. It can be tricky keeping track of things such as your phone so renting a locker can save you from a headache.
- BUKU LATE on March 11th presents Baauer, Mija, Sweater Beats, Graves, and The Funk Hunters. Priority presale for pass purchasers begins on February 25th 12 PM (CT).
BUKU LATE on March 12th presents an alternate analog Pretty Lights set with special guests Pres*Hall*Horns, Break Science, and SuperVision. Priority presale for pass purchasers begins on February 23rd at 12 PM (CT).
*To be eligible for presale, you must have had purchased a two-day pass or single day ticket before February 21st 11:59 (CT).
- Last but not least, GET EXCITED! Are you excited? Because I am beyond excited.
If you have not purchased a two-day pass or a single day ticket, you still have time to do so. Cut off date for shipping is February 28th so buy it soon or you’ll have to pick up your purchase at will call, and we all know how those lines can be...
